Dan Stinebring's collaboration wins NSF award to create Physics Frontier CenterApril 2, 2015
Dan Stinebring is a senior member of NANOGrav, a research group searching for low-frequency gravitational waves. The National Science Foundation has awarded NANOGrav $14.5 million over five years to create and operate a Physics Frontier Center. The project will focus on the direct detection of low-frequency gravitational waves, which are produced by orbiting supermassive black holes and exotic changes in the early universe.
Stinebring will play a critical role in the project by using methods and analysis to remove interstellar delays of distant pulsars. Read the full article here.
