PhD position: A/Prof Paul Lasky

Updated: about 2 hours ago

I am interested in the most catastrophic and explosive collisions in the Universe, such as the mergers of neutron stars and black holes. I study these using both gravitational waves and electromagnetic signatures, primarily focussed on linking the data from these exciting experiments with our theoretical understanding of gravity and the most extreme regions of the Universe. I am a member of the global LIGO Scientific Collaboration, as well as Australia's OzGrav Centre of Excellent for Gravitational-wave Discovery.
