Research Fields:
I am an Associate Professor at the University of Chicago, in the Enrico Fermi Institute, the Department of Physics, the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, and the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics.

My research focuses on gravitational waves. I am particularly interested in what we can learn about physics, astronomy, and cosmology from our detctions of gravitational wave sources.

I am a member of LIGO. We have detected gravitational waves from black holes! We have ushered in the era of gravitational wave astronomy.
