Leo Singer earned his Bachelor's degree in 2009 at the University of Maryland and his Ph.D. in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 2014. He is currently a Research Astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. By day, he works on real-time detection and real-time Bayesian inference in data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). By night, he tracks down optical and infrared signatures of these events using the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) and a host of other ground- and space-based astronomical facilities.
