Simon Krughoff is working on generating the simulations and analyzing the results of the DESC Twinkles project.

Twinkles: https://github.com/DarkEnergyScienceCollaboration/Twinkles

"10 years. 6 filters. 1 tiny patch of sky. Thousands of time-variable cosmological distance probes."

is focused on testing and building DESC's understand of LSST DM processing, particularly of transient and variable sources such as supernovae and AGN, particularly lensed AGN.
