Summary of Research

Research focuses on experimental tests of gravity with laboratory and astronomical measurements. In the gravity lab we are designing world-leading tests of Einstein's theory of gravity, General Relativity. The experiments measure the subtle properties of gravity at nearly the micron distance scale and may shed light on the nature of Dark Energy, Dark Matter, and the fundamental nature of space and time. I also participate in the APOLLO lunar laser ranging collaboration, which tests gravity by mapping the moon's orbit shape at the millimeter level.
