Congratulations to Professor David McClelland for being elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science for his career achievements in the detection of Gravitational Waves.

The Academy honoured the leader of CGP for his vital contribution to the detection of gravitational waves in 2016 as Australia’s leading audio-band gravitational wave scientist and Chair of the Instrument Science/Advanced Detector program in the 1000-strong LIGO Scientific Collaboration. David played a crucial role in designing, installing and commissioning Advanced LIGO’s acquisition system, and implementing quantum squeezing that improved gravitational wave detection sensitivity.
