Mike Zevin is a graduate student at the Northwestern University. His main work focuses on binary stellar evolution, dynamics and understanding the population of stellar binaries. He's interested in using observations of compact binary mergers to constraint the uncertainties of massive star evolution and glimpse at type of environments LIGO's black holes may have formed in. He is also part of the development team for the Gravity Spy project which is an interactive platform that combines Machine Learning and volunteers from the general public to help classify and characterize noise in the LIGO detectors. In his free time, he plays bass guitar for his rock band, double bass in a Chicago based orchestra, and is a competitive shuffle board player. On occasion, he enjoys binging a mindless Netflix series. You can watch a music video by his rock band here. You can also follow Mike on Twitter at @spacedontwait.
