If you have a question about this talk, please contact Michalis Agathos.

Low-energy manifestations of quantum gravity or standard model extensions could be effectively modelled as alternative theories of gravity. Gravitational waves offer a new way to test deviations from general relativity. I will discuss, from a theory perspective, the challenges of probing such deviations in the strong field regime. I will also comment on what we have learned so far about alternative theories from the recent gravitational wave detections.
