The 21st Eastern Gravity Meeting, hosted by Long Island University–Brooklyn, was held Thursday, May 24 and Friday, May 25, 2018 in Brooklyn, NY.
This annual regional meeting is open to researchers of all levels, from undergraduate students to faculty, in all areas of gravitational physics, including classical, quantum, theory, observation, computation and experiment. The purpose of the conference is to encourage the interaction of researchers in the Northeastern region.
We are happy to announce that one of our own, Laura Johnson, was the winner of the Best Student Presentation. The title of her presentation was “Partially Massless Decoupling Limit of Massive Gravity”.
The award is $200 and gives the recipient the right to advertise her/himself as winning the Division of Gravitational Physics Best Student Presentation at the particular meeting.
Please join in congratulating Laura on this accomplishment!
