James Gurian

Doctoral Candidate, Pennsylvania State University

I am a graduate student in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at Penn State, advised by Dr. Donghui Jeong. I am interested in using gravitational waves at frequencies from H0 (CMB) to Hz (LIGO) to address cosmological questions. Most of my work is related to the observation that if the dark matter can cool efficiently, it will form compact objects whose mergers may be accessible to LIGO. I have authored some papers and published some poems. You can send me an email at jhg5248@psu.edu.
