Joe brings over thirty years of software development experience to our Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astronomy Center GWPAC.
GWPAC support for Joe derives from a new NSF award for a total of $9M over 5 years to the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee for "Data Handling and Infrastructure for Advanced LIGO and Beyond." The award includes $675,000 budgeted for GWPAC and Smith to hire a programing specialist to develop software for LIGO. More information on this award can be found on the NSF website.
Welcome Joe to CSUF!
