I study the life and explosive death of massive stars and the origin of the elements, and am generally interested in nuclear astrophysics.I study massive and very massive stars (10-1000 solar masses); the first generations of stars in the universe (Pop III stars); evolution of rotating massive stars and the spin of their remnants; mixing and transport processes in the stellar interior; More »

Vuk Mandic is involved in searches for gravitational waves with LIGO. He co-chairs the LIGO group searching for the stochastic background of gravitational waves, which could be cosmological or astrophysical in origin. He is also involved in the studies of different noise sources that limit the performance of gravitational-wave detectors, and is leading a collaboration studying the possibility of building such a detector underground.

We have a cool group of people in search for information about the origin of the Universe. We look for this information in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation, which is a relic remnant from the Big Bang. We have been using self-made balloon-borne telescopes that fly high above the planet to observe this radiation. We are now searching for signals that originated as early as 10-35 seconds after the big bang. More »
