Hunter Gabbard applies machine learning tools to gravitational waves

Hunter Gabbard, a recent graduate of The University of Mississippi’s Bachelor of Science physics program, is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the University of Glasgow. Under the supervision of Dr Christopher Messenger, Mr Gabbard and his collaborators have demonstrated that machine learning algorithms may be useful in automating the search for astrophysical events that are detected on earth as gravitational waves.
