Gravitational waves are being detected more and more frequently by the Advanced LIGO interferometers due to the improvements made to their precision. To improve the rate at which we detect gravitational waves, one method would be to reduce the noise that is intrinsic to these signals, so that more signals can be extracted with confidence. To achieve this, a deeper understanding of the noise couplings that mask these signals is necessary. This project develops statistically rigorous methods of inferring interferometric parameters which govern these noise couplings using interferometer modeling software and Bayesian inference techniques.
