Andrews University Gravitational Waves Group

Tiffany SummerscalesTiffany Summerscales, PhD

Andrews University students work with Dr. Tiffany Summerscales as members of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC). The collaboration works to support research done with LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) in running and improving the detectors and doing astronomy with the data that they produce. The Andrews University group assists with the development and testing of computer algorithms that reconstruct the properties of the gravitational waves that are measured by multiple detectors. They also participate in educational and outreach activities.
