Welcome to the GECo Laboratory

Our mission

GECo is studying the birth and death of cosmic black holes, and other violent cosmic events, through multimessenger astrophysics using gravitational waves. We strongly believe that beyond seeking fundamental discoveries, scientists should also invest in bettering human life here on Earth through utilizing their experience and creativity.
