Dr.Pai's group works on detection of gravitational waves from compact binaries, testing general relativity with gravitational wave observations, astrophysical relativity, statistical signal processing and optics. The group is a member of LIGO Science Collaboration and IndIGO consortium. Dr.Sahoo's group works in the area of string theory with current focus on higherspin theories in three dimensions and offshell N=4 conformal supergravity. Dr.Shankaranarayanan's group works on several aspects of general relativity and cosmology with focus on blackhole physics, cosmological inflation, cosmological perturbation theory, modified gravity models, quantum gravity phenomenology and semiclassical gravity.
