Brady named American Physical Society Fellow

Posted by CGC on December 3, 2010

Patrick Brady, UWM physics professor, and director of UWM's Center for Gravitation and Cosmology, has been elected a Fellow of the APS. This honor is in recognition of Brady's pioneering contributions to gravitational-wave physics and for studies that deepened our understanding of singularities and of critical collapse.

Brady's research interests include the dynamics of gravitational collapse, black holes, numerical relativity including simulation of binary coalescence, and the detection of gravitational waves using interferometric gravitational-wave detectors.

UWM's Center for Gravitation and Cosmology now includes 4 APS Fellows: Bruce Allen, Patrick Brady, John Friedman, and Leonard Parker.
