Peter S. Shawhan received his Ph.D in physics in 1999 from the
University of Chicago, where he worked on an experiment in
high-energy physics at Fermilab. He then switched specialties and
began work on gravitational-wave detection at the California
Institute of Technology, where he is currently a staff scientist.
Shawhan has contributed to several aspects of the Laser
Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, from software tools
to detector characterization, and presently focuses on data
