Grant Meadors (born JD 2446345) is an American student. In the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor's PhD physics program, he is researching gravitational waves and working toward their direct detection. Seen or not, the results of these experiments will illuminate as-yet-unobservable realms of astrophysics. Having graduated from Reed College in 2008 after having studied abroad at Trinity College Dublin, he also respects classic literature, languages, and history. Manifested in genealogical research, urban and natural hiking, and veganism, the adaptation and evolution of human and animal life in the universe and its long term future weigh heavily on his mind.
