Hanna Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Group

Chad Hanna - Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy and Astrophysics

I am the Freed Early Career Professor of Physics and hold the rank of Associate Professor in Physics and Astronomy and Astrophysics. I am a co-hire of the Institute for Computational and Data Science (ICDS) and am a member of the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos (IGC). I have been a faculty member of Penn State since 2014. I currently co-lead the Compact Binary Coalescence group within the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC). Our group comprises over 200 scientists from across the world working together to use gravitational waves as a tool to explore fundamental physics and as a vehicle for astronomical discovery. My primary research focuses on the detection and characterization of gravitational waves from merging neutron stars an black holes with the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, which I have done since 2003. My group leads efforts to detect gravitational waves in real-time to support multi-messenger astrophysics. We are also exploring potential connections between black holes detected by LIGO and dark matter. My other academic interests include improving researchers' access to computational methods and infrastructure in order to hasten discoveries across a variety of fields.
