The Division of Gravitational Physics (DGRAV) at the American Physical Society (APS) is pleased to announce the launch of the monthly online seminar series. The seminar will be held on the first Thursday of each month at 3 pm Eastern time, starting from October 6th.
The format for these seminars will be to have a more senior person, typically the research supervisor, give a short (about 15 mins) overview talk introducing the topic and open questions, and a more junior person, typically a graduate student or postdoc, give a more detailed research talk (about 30 mins). The goals are for the audience to learn about new subjects, while providing junior researchers with the opportunity to introduce themselves to our community.
The schedule for this year is as follows:
– Oct. 6: Prof. Emanuele Berti (Johns Hopkins U) and Dr. Kaze Wong (Flatiron Institute)
“Building new tools for gravitational wave astronomy”
– Nov. 3: Prof. Asimina Arvanitaki (Perimeter Institute) and Prof. Masha Baryakhtar (U. Washington)
-Dec. 1: Prof. Bob Wald (U. of Chicago) and Dr. Gautam Satishchandran (Princeton U.)
“Black Holes are Watching You”
