Collaborations

2022.11  Present
Simulating Extreme Spacetimes (SXS) Collaboration
The SXS project is a collaborative research effort involving multiple institutions. Our goal is the simulation of black holes and other extreme spacetimes to gain a better understanding of Relativity, and the physics of exotic objects in the distant cosmos.
 Contributor to the Spectral Einstein Code (SpEC)
 Member of the SXS Social Media Team

2019.03  Present
Black Hole Perturbation Toolkit
The Black Hole Perturbation Toolkit brings together software and data relating to black hole perturbation theory. These can then be used to model gravitational radiation from small massratio binaries as well as from the ringdown of black holes.
 Contributor to the KerrGeodesics package

2018.10  Present
Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) Consortium
The LISA Consortium is a large international collaboration that combines the resources and expertise from scientists in many countries all over the world. Together with ESA, its member states, and NASA, the LISA Consortium is working to bring the LISA Mission to fruition.
 Member of the Waveform Working Group
 Member of the LISA Early Career Scientists (LECS)

2018.10  Present
Capra Community
The Capra meeting is an annual workshop on the topic of radiation reaction in general relativity. The primary focus of these workshops is the development of the gravitational selfforce approach to model extreme mass ratio inspirals and further our understanding of the twobody problem in general relativity.
 Member of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Team

2023.04  2023.11
LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC)
The LSC is a group of scientists focused on the direct detection of gravitational waves, using them to explore the fundamental physics of gravity, and developing the emerging field of gravitational wave science as a tool of astronomical discovery.
 Member of the Waveform Working Group
