STRONG Group

The Strong Group is a research group under the Niels Bohr International Academy that explores the influence of gravitational waves in the dynamics of several systems. The Strong Group focuses on strong-field gravity, including black hole spectroscopy, tests of the black hole paradigm and tests of extensions of General Relativity.

Research

Gravitational-wave astronomy has revolutionized science. The STRONG Group aims to explore the influence of gravitational waves in the dynamics of several systems, for instance gravitational waves emitted by extreme-mass ratio systems, waves emitted by scalar structures, and waves emitted by exotic compact objects. In fact, we aim to test General Relativity and the black hole paradigm to unprecedented levels. The group's focus is on strong-field gravity, including black hole spectroscopy, tests of the black hole paradigm and tests of extensions of General Relativity.

About the STRONG Group

The STRONG Group is funded by a Villum Investigator grant and a DNRF Chair grant and was initiated in 2022. The STRONG Group is directed by Prof. Vitor Cardoso and currently counts 8 researchers, 6 PhD students and 1 research coordinator. The group is a part of the Niels Bohr International Academy at the Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen. We are located in the historic buildings on Blegdamsvej 17 in Copenhagen.
