2012 - Fellow of American Physical Society (APS) Citation For his important contributions at the interface between perturbation theory and numerical relativity and in understanding how to simulate binary black holes

- Quantum mechanics
- General relativity
- Mathematical analysis

Astrophysics, Gravitational wave, LIGO, Black hole and Binary black hole are his primary areas of study. In his study, Solar mass and Pulsar is strongly linked to General relativity, which falls under the umbrella field of Astrophysics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mass ratio and Classical mechanics in addition to Gravitational wave.

His work in the fields of LIGO, such as GW151226 and KAGRA, overlaps with other areas such as Population. His Black hole study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Binary star, Angular momentum and Orbital plane. His Binary black hole research includes elements of Gravitational wave background, Horizon and Theory of relativity.

- Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Black Hole Merger (7103 citations)
- GW170817: observation of gravitational waves from a binary neutron star inspiral (4913 citations)
- GW151226: observation of gravitational waves from a 22-solar-mass binary black hole coalescence (2671 citations)

His main research concerns Black hole, Gravitational wave, Astrophysics, LIGO and Binary black hole. His Black hole research incorporates themes from Recoil, Mass ratio and Classical mechanics. His work deals with themes such as General relativity, Magnetar, Pulsar, Neutrino and Amplitude, which intersect with Gravitational wave.

His research in Astrophysics tackles topics such as Spins which are related to areas like Orbital plane. He focuses mostly in the field of LIGO, narrowing it down to matters related to Gamma-ray burst and, in some cases, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. While the research belongs to areas of Binary black hole, he spends his time largely on the problem of Hawking radiation, intersecting his research to questions surrounding White hole.

- Black hole (56.83%)
- Gravitational wave (62.57%)
- Astrophysics (55.46%)

- LIGO (53.55%)
- Gravitational wave (62.57%)
- Astrophysics (55.46%)

His primary areas of study are LIGO, Gravitational wave, Astrophysics, Neutron star and Binary black hole. His LIGO study deals with the bigger picture of Astronomy. His study in Gravitational wave is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sky, Magnetar, Pulsar, Amplitude and Coincident.

In general Astrophysics study, his work on Redshift, Stars and Galaxy often relates to the realm of Population, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Binary black hole study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Black hole. His work on Primordial black hole as part of general Black hole study is frequently connected to Gauge, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

Carlos O. Lousto spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, LIGO, Gravitational wave, Neutron star and Binary black hole. His study on Black hole, Mass distribution and KAGRA is often connected to Population as part of broader study in Astrophysics. His research in LIGO intersects with topics in Stars, Galaxy, Dark matter and Amplitude.

His studies in Gravitational wave integrate themes in fields like Pulsar, Cosmic string, Mass ratio and Sky. His Neutron star research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Coalescence, Gamma-ray burst and Tests of general relativity. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Binary black hole, focusing on Redshift and, on occasion, Supernova.
