Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity, astrophysics and high energy physics. The group was established in 2010. In January 2015 Gr@v integrated the FCT funded CIDMA research unit (UIDB/04106/2020 and UIDP/04106/2020), as the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics research group. The group scientific coordinator is C. Herdeiro.
Group members Sonia Anton and Carlos Herdeiro, as well as Tiago Campante from IA and U. Porto, participated in the outreach activity "Café de Ciência", at Fábrica, Centro de Ciência Viva de Aveiro, as part of the conference cycle "À descoberta do Universo" promoted by Tiago Campante.
Jose Blázquez-Salcedo is visiting the group within a (one month) short term scientific mission of the COST action GWverse. He presented a seminar on "Quasi-normal modes of neutron stars in R^2 gravity".
The CIDMA research unit meeting 2020 took place on the 22-23 January at the Mathematics Department of Aveiro University. João Oliveira and Sonia Anton were the two Gr@v representatives in the scientific programme.
The Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meeting (EREP2020) will take place at the University of Aveiro, from 14-17 September 2020. Registration will open on February 1st.
Taishi Ikeda, a post-doctoral researcher at IST-Lisbon, visited Gr@v from 6-11 January 2020 and gave a seminar on "Tidal effect on scalar cloud".
The Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) launched the third edition of the "Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus". The call will open from January 30th to February 26th 2020. This call funds post-doctoral positions at various seniority levels. Our group is open to support good candidates in Strong Gravity, Astrophysics and High Energy Physics.
