Manage episode 277554559 series 2816382
Dr. Evans is designing new technologies to improve advanced LIGO, a laser interferometer that detects gravitational waves. In 2019 he was awarded the New Horizons in physics prize for research on present and future ground-based detectors of gravitational waves. I talked to him about how he accidentally got into the field of astrophysics, and his work in the LIGO group.
