Professor Bernard Schutz FLSW FRS, Professor in the School of Physics and Astronomy, Cardiff University, has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society.

Professor Schutz is a theoretical physicist, specialising in gravitational wave science.

The Royal Society wrote:

He showed that gravitational wave signals are yardsticks for cosmic distances (generally called standard sirens), and demonstrated how to use them to measure the expansion rate of the universe. Among his other contributions, Schutz laid the foundations for the data analysis methods that are used to discover these weak signals in detector noise and to measure their properties.
