Yagi Honored with NSF Career Award

Wednesday, November 29 2023

Congratulations to Kent Yagi who has been granted an NSF CAREER Award based on his proposal, “Exploring Strong-field Gravity and Dense Matter Physics through Gravitational-wave Observations”. The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is the NSF’s most prestigious award for early-career faculty who have the potential to play a leading role in research and education. One of the activities to be investigated is to use machine-learning algorithms to test strong-field gravity with gravitational waves, which was initially supported by the internal collaboration fund from the department.
