Cosmic collisions sometimes create both light and gravitational waves. The project "Gravity meets Light" aims to further our understanding of these collisions and the radiation they emit. By using a complete chain from simulations and models to observations the research group hopes to gain more knowledge of gravitional waves, but also about where, and how, the heaviest elements in the universe are formed.
