Marc van der Sluys


I am a gravitational-wave physicist and computer scientist, working as a researcher on the detection and data analysis of gravitational waves for Virgo, LIGO and the Einstein Telescope. I am based at the Dutch National Institute for Nuclear and High Energy Physics (Nikhef) in Amsterdam, and at the Institute for Gravitational and Subatomic Physics (GRASP) at Utrecht University, in the Netherlands.
