The University of Mississippi invites students interested in Gravitational Physics and Astrophysics to join our graduate program.
The Gravitational and High-Energy Theory Group at the University of Mississippi is active in various areas of theoretical and experimental gravity and is part of the LIGO collaboration. Members of the group include Emanuele Berti, Luca Bombelli, Marco Cavaglia, Alakabha Datta, Tibor Torma, adjunct professor Vitor Cardoso, visiting professor Mihai Bondarescu and several graduate students.
Our research interests include both classical and quantum gravity. Present research focuses on the theory, phenomenology and detection of gravitational waves, the structure and dynamics of black holes and neutron stars, relativistic astrophysics, theoretical and phenomenological aspects of quantum gravity, astroparticle physics and cosmology.
