Davide Gerosa

HopBham workshop

Check me out on github.com/dgerosa/pdetclassifier.

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: [Spin precession phenomenology]
  • Andrea Antonelli, JHU: Noisy neighbours: inference biases from overlapping gravitational-wave signals
  • Felix Julie, JHU: Black hole binaries in Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet gravity.

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