As members of the LIGO Science Consortium, we work on electromagnetic followup of gravitational wave sources in the Advanced LIGO era. In particular, we have developed a novel technique for transient identification in difference imaging applications. We have incorporated this into full end-to-end pipeline simulations of gravitational wave events - from GW detections to EM observations.
