Abstract: The discovery of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos by IceCube in 2013 and of gravitational waves by LIGO in 2015 have enabled a new era of multi-messenger astronomy. Gravitational waves can identify the merging of compact objects such as neutron stars and black holes. These compact mergers, especially neutron star mergers, are potential neutrino sources. I will detail my work searching for a correlation between compact binary mergers and high-energy neutrino emission using IceCube neutrino data together with gravitational wave data provided by the LIGO Virgo Collaboration.
