PHYS 2326 University Physics II


My primary interests involve experimental astrophysics, especially the use of light to measure gravitational waves. This splits into two research areas that are related and share the same core technology to measure the effects - heterodyne detection of light phases. The areas are mainly defined by either being related to LIGO or LISA.

Students working in my research: Gregorio Tellez (undergraduate), Guillermo Valdes and Steven Shoen (graduate)
Research Projects for future Graduate/Undergraduate Students
