2017 Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded for Detection of Gravitational Waves
A researcher in Japan has played an important role in the world’s first direct detection of gravitational waves.
Kipp Cannon, an associate professor at the Research Center for the Early Universe (RESCEU), which is an affiliate of the Graduate School of Science, is a leading expert in gravitational wave data analysis and had led Canada's LIGO research team during his time as a Senior Research Associate at the University of Toronto in Canada.
