Faculty Award: NSF CSSI Grant

Madeline Wade, Associate Professor of Physics, has been awarded funding from NSF for her project “Framework: An A+ Framework for Multimessenger Astrophysics Discoveries through Real-Time Gravitational Wave Detection.” This $3,397,540 project is being led by the Pennsylvania State University with subawards to Kenyon College and Concordia University Wisconsin.

This 5-year project is part of the NSF 20-592 Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) $33,000,000 funding opportunity of which no more than 10 framework proposals would be awarded.

“This project helps support a cyberinfrastructure framework that enables multi messenger astrophysics discoveries through real-time gravitational wave detection.  The subaward to Kenyon will fund part of a team that is developing software and operating services supporting thousands of researchers across the globe who leverage gravitational-wave detector data from LIGO, Virgo, and KAGRA.  Kenyon specifically will be hiring two postdoctoral researchers over the course of five years who will focus on developing real-time methods for calibrating LIGO data, which is an early step in the pipeline for real-time gravitational wave detection.”
