Richard says, “I have been fortunate to have the benefit of working in the CGCA over the past four years. As one of the worldleading programs in gravitationalwave physics and astronomy, particularly in the development of searches for and in the interpretation of gravitationalwave sources, it’s been the perfect place to develop my career. Everyone here, from graduate students to professors emeriti, have helped me grow as a researcher, scholar, and teacher. Fortunately, as a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, I won’t be leaving these relationships behind. I’m extremely excited about the next few years, when we finally open our new window onto the universe.”
The CGCA wishes Richard the best of luck in the next steps of his career, and we are grateful for the years he has spent here at UWM.
