Aubrey Laity selected as NASA RI Space Grant Graduate Fellow

Congratulations to Aubrey Laity, who just this week was selected as a recipient of the NASA Rhode Island Space Grant Graduate Fellowship for academic year 2023 – 2024. As a part of this fellowship she will contribute directly to LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA’s upcoming fourth observing run, set to begin this spring and continue throughout the term of the fellowship. Aubrey’s work will involve gravitational wave analysis of gamma-ray bursts observed by electromagnetic observatories such as NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and NASA’s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory. And this fellowship will grant her the academic freedom to participate cutting-edge gravitational wave science as it’s happening – in real time. Well done, Aubrey!
