Joe Romano's primary research interest is gravitational-wave data analysis, specializing in searches for stochastic gravitational-wave backgrounds using data from ground-based or space-based interferometers or pulsar timing arrays. He was co-chair of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration Stochastic Sources Analysis Group from 2000-2006. His prior research experience includes fundamental problems in classical and quantum gravity.
