Thesis

Gravitational wave astrophysics

Summary

My research interest mainly lies in sources of gravitational wave signals in our Universe, especially the stochastic gravitational wave (GW) background (either formed from the early-universe cosmological processes or by those more recent astrophysical GW events), and what can we learn about these sources using future GW observations (namely doing GW astrophysics/cosmology).
