Author Biography

Clifford M. Will is a world-leading theorist in the verification of general relativity, black holes and gravitational waves. He received his Ph.D. in 1971 from Caltech, and has been on the faculty of Stanford, Washington University and the University of Florida, where he is currently Distinguished Professor. Will has written numerous popular articles and four books, including Was Einstein Right? in 1986, which received many accolades. He is a member of the US National Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Nicol?s Yunes is Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before joining the University of Illinois, he was a NASA Einstein Fellow at MIT and Harvard University, and an Assistant Professor at Montana State University, where he co-founded the eXtreme Gravity Institute. He is the author of several review articles on tests of General Relativity and over 150 research papers. He is also the creator of the Celebrating Einstein science festival, the Rhythms of the Universe spoken word event, the Einstein Playlist planetarium show, and has appeared in weekly local radio shows. He pioneered the use of gravitational wave observations to systematically test Einstein's theory of General Relativity and is an internationally recognized expert in other aspects of gravitational physics, including black holes and neutron stars. He recently received the Young Scientist Prize from the International Society for General Relativity and Gravitation.
