Gravitational waves

Recently detected in 2015 by the LIGO/Virgo interferometers, gravitational waves are playing a key role in multi-messenger astronomy. Especially, they provide precious information about the initial system (spin, initial masses, …).

Since 2016, I am part of the LIGO/Virgo collaboration. My work is focusing on synergies between gravitational wave signal and electromagnetic signature to constrain the parameter inference of binary neutron stars. I am also part of the LIGO/Virgo multi-messenger program in charge of relasing public alerts enabling a rapid follow-up by neutrinos and space/ground electromagnetic facilities in order to identify the counterpart.
