Harrison Siegel received his B.S. in physics from UC Santa Barbara in 2019 and is currently a Ph.D. student in the physics department at Columbia University working with Prof. Yuri Levin. He is also mentored by Will Farr and Max Isi at the Flatiron Institute.
Harrison is currently interested in both noise computations and data analysis for LIGO and other gravitational wave detectors. His recent work includes a theoretical computation of the noise introduced by semiconductor optics in future gravitational wave detectors, and a test of general relativity through the analysis of black hole ringdowns detected by LIGO.
