Gabriela González Named Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Classical and Quantum Gravity

Gabriela González has been named editor-in-chief of the scientific journal Classical and Quantum Gravity

Dr. González is a professor in the department of physics and astronomy at Louisiana State University. She is also an experimental physicist with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), where she contributed to the detection of gravitational waves in 2015 predicated by Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Her current research involves the reduction and characterization of noise to enhance the laser interferometers’ sensitivity to detect gravitational waves, calibrate the detectors, and analyze data.

“I am very humbled to occupy a position that six eminent scientists held before including H. Nicolai, G. Gibbons, K. Stelle, M. MacCallum, R. Wald, and C. Will. And I will help the journal continue to grow and succeed in a rapidly evolving field. It is my goal to maintain the highest standards for the journal, as we broaden the range of articles as ‘gravity’ is at the core of exciting theory and experiment with expanding frontiers at cosmologically large and small quantum scales,” said Dr. González.

A native of Córdoba, Argentina, Dr. González is a graduate of the University of Córdoba, where she majored in physics. She holds a Ph.D. from Syracuse University in New York.
