Astrophysics, Gravitation and Cosmology Seminar: "Gravitational wave astrophysics: a successful transdisciplinary research model"

Speaker Eliu Huerta Escudero, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Date: 9/13/2017
Time: 12 p.m.

276 Loomis

Event Contact: Milton Ruiz

Department of Physics

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

The detection of gravitational waves will be one of the most celebrated scientific achievements of this century. Realizing this breakthrough required the development of major experimental and cyber-infratructure resources. I will discuss how community efforts from disparate fields of research were essential to enable the birth of gravitational wave astrophysics, and how they are now being used to maximize the science that can be extracted by combining gravitational waves with other cosmic messengers.
