Alberto Vecchio


Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Alberto Vecchio’s research interests include general relativity, the astrophysics of compact objects - black holes and neutron stars - and cosmology. His work is primarily centred on gravitational-wave science and the effort to directly observe gravitational radiation with ground-based laser interferometers (LIGO, GEO 600 and Virgo), pulsar timing arrays and future space-based interferometers. He is also interested in data analysis techniques and is involved in the instrumental upgrade of LIGO to Advanced LIGO.

Professor Vecchio supervises PhD projects in compact objects, gravitational wave sources and observations.
