Research Interests:

Prof. Aggarwal is interested in precision measurements for fundamental physics. In particular, she uses techniques from Quantum Optics, atomic physics, and condensed matter physics to look for new physics in the form of dark matter candidates or gravitational waves from astrophysical, cosmological, and exotic sources.

She is a member of the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory) collaboration, LSD (Levitated Sensor Detector) collaboration, and the ARIADNE (Axion Resonant InterAction DetectioN Experiment) collaboration.

She is also part of a new global initiative to build detectors for Ultra High Frequency GW detectors.
