Karsten Danzmann is the Director at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) in Hannover. He is one of the international leaders in the field of gravitational waves, a phenomenon which was predicted by Albert Einstein exactly 100 years ago and confirmed by a large international research effort in early 2016. This breakthrough discovery of ripples in the fabric of space-time opens up entirely new windows for the observation of the universe. Prof. Dr. Danzmann is also Executive Director of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the Leibniz University Hannover.
