Research  

As a founding member of the North American Nano-Hertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav), professor Jenet and his colleagues are utilizing the unique properties of radio pulsars to detect and study fluctuations in space and time known as gravitational waves. Dr. Jenet created the Arecibo Remote Command Center program (ARCC) where undergraduate and high school students can participate in this research by searching the galaxy for new radio pulsars. He is also developing the Lo-Frequency All Sky Monitor (LoFASM), a radio array that will search the sky for short-lived radio bursts of astronomical origin.
