Davide Gerosa’s research featured in the Caltech Undergraduate Research Journal

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Davide Gerosa’s research (supervised by Emanuele through a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship at Caltech in 2013) is featured in the Winter 2014 issue of CURJ, the Caltech Undergraduate Research Journal. From the editors:

CURJ is honored to partner with all of Caltech’s Student and Faculty Programs to highlight some of the cutting edge research done by four young scientists: Lisa Eshun-Wilson, Davide Gerosa, Herbert Mehnert, and Adam Ryason. Their research topics range from tissue regeneration to modeling tire-ground interactions, and the variety in their research showcases only a tiny portion of all the diverse research taking place at both Caltech and JPL.

Congratulations, Davide!

Testing General Relativity with Astrophysical Observations

Friday, January 3, 2014

A good way to start the new year: the University of Mississippi is hosting a workshop on tests of general relativity in astrophysical environments. Many of the participants will stay in Oxford for collaborations in the next few weeks. More information is available on the workshop website.
