Biography

Nikolaos obtained his MPhys from the University of Southampton, and the focus of his master's dissertation was on analytical approximations of gravitational waveforms from black hole mergers.

His research focuses on the gravitational-wave background that results from astrophysical and cosmological sources. He is interested in the theoretical predictions surrounding this background, as well as the various detection techniques and the data analysis aspect. Nikolaos is also a member of the LIGO collaboration.
