The Gravitational Wave International Committee and the Friends of Stefano Braccini award a yearly prize recognizing an outstanding Ph.D. thesis in the field of gravitational waves, the GWIC-Braccini Thesis Prize. In 2021, members of the gravitational wave community nominated 27 students who have performed notable research on any aspect of gravitational wave science. Theses are judged on 1) originality and creativity of the research, 2) importance to the field of gravitational waves and gravitational wave detection, broadly interpreted, and 3) clarity of presentation. This year’s prize, as announced today at the 14th International LISA Symposium, was awarded to Kaze Wong, who received a certificate of recognition and a prize of US$ 1,000.

Congratulations, Kaze!
