Gaurav Khanna

Professor of Physics, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth


Dr. Khanna is a Professor in the Physics Department, and the Co-Director of the Center for Scientific Computing at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He works on a variety of challenging problems in theoretical and computational physics. This primary research project is related to the coalescence of binary black hole systems using perturbation theory and estimation of the properties of the emitted gravitational waves. This research is of relevance to the well-known NSF LIGO laboratory (and upcoming space-borne missions) that have just succeeded in making a direct observation of these waves. Dr. Khanna has extensive parallel and scientific computing experience as a regular user of NSF’s XSEDE facilities, and also has detailed knowledge of a variety of computer architectures (multi-core CPU, GPU, APU, etc.). He has published over seventy (70) research papers in top international journals and secured over a million-dollars in research funding to date.

His research is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), MA Space Grant Consortium (NASA), US Air Force Research (AFRL/AFOSR), private foundations (FQXi and others) and the computer industry (Apple, IBM, Sony, Nvidia and others).

2020 Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded for Work on Black Holes—an Astrophysicist Explains the Trailblazing Discoveries

Black holes are perhaps the most mysterious objects in nature. They warp space and time in extreme ways and contain a mathematical impossibility, a singularity—an infinitely hot and dense object within. But if black...
