Speakers: Chiara Mingarelli, University of Birmingham

Gravitational waves are at the forefront of research in fundamental physics.
This talk will show how we can use an array of pulsars which cover the sky, called a pulsar timing array (PTA), to directly detect gravitational waves from super massive black hole binaries in the centre of galaxy mergers.
