Dr Daniel Williams

I'm Daniel Williams a gravitational wave astrophysicist based at the Institute for Gravitational Research searching for gravitational waves. My main research interests include the use of Bayesian machine learning techniques to produce surrogate models. A list of my major research projects can be found here.
