Xavier Siemens awarded two prestigious NSF grants

Posted by CGC on November 6, 2010


Xavier Siemens, a physicist at the Center for Gravitation and Cosmology, has been awarded two prestigious grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), both related to his work in the international effort to detect gravitational waves.

Siemens, an assistant professor, will use the $500,000 Early Career Development (CAREER) Award to search for evidence of gravitational waves in data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in the U.S., and VIRGO and GEO in Europe, as well as signals from pulsars in data collected from radio telescopes such as the Arecibo Radio Telescope in Puerto Rico.
