APS Fellows Nominated by DGRAV  

Filter by Year:


Baumgarte, Thomas W. [2016]
Bowdoin College
Citation: For numerous contributions to numerical relativity and computational astrophysics, including initial data algorithms and codes for binary compact stars, co-development of the BSSN formulation of Einstein's field equations, and the involvement of undergraduate students in forefront research.


Bicak, Jiri [2016]
Charles University
Citation: For advanced research in general relativity and gravitation, and for his leadership in the gravitational physics community, especially in Eastern Europe.


Frolov, Valery V. [2016]
Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory Livingston Observatory
Citation: For his contributions to gravitational-wave physics, in particular the commissioning of the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory detector that observed GW140914.


Landry, Michael [2016]
Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory Hanford Observatory
Citation: For contributions to the first direct detection of gravitational waves, including leadership of early efforts in detector calibration and data analysis, leadership of the installation of the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory at Hanford and leadership of its first observing run.


Silverstein, Eva [2016]
Stanford University
Citation: For fundamental contributions to quantum gravity and early universe cosmology.


Sperhake, Ulrich [2016]
CSIC - Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas
Citation: For important contributions to numerical studies of binary black hole systems, including leading work on recoil velocities following astrophysical mergers, and pioneering efforts exploring the high-speed collision problem of relevance to super-Planck scale physics.


Stebbins, Robin T. [2016]
NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center
Citation: For 50 years of science and service, including lunar laser ranging, Brans-Dicke tests using the sun's oblateness, the development of vibration isolation systems for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory, and interferometry for future space-based missions like the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna.


Vallisneri, Michele [2016]
California Institute of Technology
Citation: For significant contributions to the statistical theory and computational practice of gravitational-wave detection and parameter estimation, and for cross-fertilizing technical approaches among the ground-based, space-based, and pulsar-timing detection programs.
