Speaker: Prof. Peter Shawhan of UMCP’s Experimental Gravity Group
Title: "LIGO's Ordinary and Exceptional Gravitational-Wave Events".
Prof. Shawhan has been a UMD faculty member since 2006, and is also a Fellow of the Joint Space-Science Institute. He has held numerous leadership positions within the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC). Prof. Shawhan currently serves as Observational Science Coordinator for LIGO and is a member of the LSC Management Team. He is also doing research in superconducting gravity gradiometer sensors and in gamma-ray astrophysics.
This is a guest lecture in Bei-Lok Hu's Phys 675/475 so it will have more pedagogical flavor, from LIGO to data analysis to recent observed astrophysical events. ALL ARE WELCOME!
