International Summer Research Program in Gravitational-Wave Physics:
Research Experiences for Undergraduates around the world


University of Glasgow
Director: Prof. Jim Hough
The gravitational wave group at the University of Glasgow is one of the oldest and best established groups in the field. It is led by Profs. Jim Hough, Sheila Rowan and Ken Strain. The group is heavily involved in the design, construction, and commissioning or the GEO detector in Hanover, Germany. The group is the leading institute in ultra-stable bonding techniques for ground-based and space-based optical interferometer, is working on advanced suspension systems, on data analysis, and is one of only a handful of groups with their own GW-detector prototype. The group has several young faculty members and senior scientists, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students.
