Tiffany's research concerns how LIGO’s (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) epistemology can be described through its understanding of noise by focusing on the history of site selection of LIGO and LIGO's efforts to identify gravitational wave signals from noise, which includes actual and metaphorical noise. Her advisor is Peter Galison.
