Proving Einstein Right

I was able to be part of the LIGO collaboration research.
The size of the AU physics department allows students to get involved in research early in their career. I began my research in Professor Harry's Gravity and Thermal Noise LIGO lab my sophomore year and was able to be a part of the LIGO collaboration research that recently led to the discovery of Gravitational Waves. Last June, we were published in the Classical and Quantum Gravity journal and asked to write a follow up for their website. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience in physics here and I can’t wait to start a career doing what I love.
