Felipe Guzmán


Dr. Guzmán is an Associate Professor and experimental physicist with the departments of Aerospace Engineering and Physics & Astronomy at Texas A&M University (TAMU). His research focuses on the development of novel optomechanical inertial sensors, precision laser interferometry, and optical technologies for ground and space applications in gravitational-wave astrophysics, geosciences, navigation, and precision metrology. He is the PI of the TAMU groups within the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) and the LISA Consortium. Upon receiving his Ph.D. in Physics from the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Hannover, Germany, he was awarded a NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) fellowship at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center with the Gravitational Astrophysics Laboratory. Later, he became a Senior Research Associate at the Joint Quantum Institute (NIST and University of Maryland) and Research Group Leader at the German Space Agency (DLR) in collaboration with the University of Bremen.
