Scott Ransom

I'm a staff astronomer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in Charlottesville, Virginia and a Research Professor in the Astronomy Dept at the University of Virginia (UVA) specializing in pulsars. I'm one of the founders of the North American effort to directly detect nanoHertz gravitational waves using millisecond pulsars called NANOGrav (and was its Chair from 2019-2022), and my research is focused on finding new pulsars and using them to do basic physics, in general.
