Davide Gerosa

HopBham workshop

With gravitational waves (and pandemics…) still raging, we organized an informal workshop to facilitate dialogue between our gravity research groups at Johns Hopkins and Birmingham.


We’ll meet in Zoomland. Link will be circulated via email.


Thu Jan 21, 2021. Session starts at 9am EST, 2pm UK

  • Vishal Baibhav, JHU: The parents of LIGO’s black holes and their hometown.
  • Matt Mould, BHAM: Mining many messy mergers: Gaussian processes, GW population inference, and hierarchical mergers.
  • Kaze Wong, JHU: Applying normalizing flows to gravitational-wave populations.
  • Davide Gerosa, BHAM: We need to know what’s missing. Gravitational-wave selection effects with machine learning.

Thu Jan 28, 2021. Session starts at 9am EST, 2pm UK

  • Vladimir Strokov, JHU: Finding IMBHs in the Milky Way globular clusters through Doppler shifts in gravitational signal.
  • Emanuele Berti, JHU: The LISA key science interpretation work package: effects of low-frequency, mission duration, and figures of merit.
  • Daria Gangardt, BHAM: Precession and nutation in binary black holes.

Thu Feb 4, 2021. Session starts at 9am EST, 2pm UK

  • Roberto Cotesta, JHU: Getting ready for the LISA symphony: Bayesian parameter estimation on BHBs using waveform models with higher-order modes, and more…
