On the 2nd of december 2015, Einstein published the Theory that has changed our understanding of the Universe: the theory of the Generale Relativity. He showed how the space time curvatures tells the masses how to moove and how the masses of the object curves the space time. Gravitational waves are distortions of space time predicted by this theory that will propagate through the universe and eventually reach the earth. One hundred year later, we are on the point of entering a new area in Astrophysics. The direct detection of a gravitational wave that might be done by the detector LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) will open a new window in astrophysics. I am focusing on the Coalescences of Binary Compact Objects that are one of the progenitor of those gravitational waves.
In one hand, I am working on the Gravitational Waves detection through the detector characterization with the optimisation of the pipeline of detection, but also on the burst searches with the pipeline called coherent Wave Burst, and the binary compact objects objects with the intermediate black holes coalescence. I am now a member of the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration since 2012.
In the other hand, my field of expertise concerns the coincident detection between the gravitational waves emited by the neutron star merger and the electromagnetic emission through a jet of plasma called a short Gamma Ray Burst. I work on that topic within the Collaboration LIGO, but also with the VIRGO team in Nice and I am a member of the FIGAROnet collaboration, composed by astronomers and physicists who collaborate on the best strategy for the follow-up of Gamma-Ray bursts and Gravitational waves emitters.
