Member of the four-person LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna) Programme Management Board. LISA is a space experiment to detect low-frequency gravitational waves using three satellites, working in pairs, in order to measure the 'strain of space' as a function of time arising from these waves. Sources of these waves include colliding galaxies, stars falling into supermassive Black Holes, etc. LISA has been adopted by the European Space Agency as their L(Large)3 mission, and is likely to cost > 1 Billion €.
