Research

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. In broad terms, he is interested in theoretical and experimental aspects of gravitation and gravitational-wave astronomy.

Biographical Sketch

Patrick Brady received his BSc in Mathematical Science from University College Dublin in 1988 and a PhD in Physics from the University of Alberta in 1994 where he studied with Werner Israel. He was a research associate at University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne from 1993-1995, a Prize Fellow at Caltech from 1995-1998 and a research associate at University of California, Santa Barbara from 1998-1999. Since 1999, Brady has been working at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he holds the rank of Professor.

Patrick Brady received a Research Corporation Cottrell Scholar Award and a Sloan Research Fellowship in 2002. He was Secretary/Treasurer of the American Physical Society Topical Group in Gravitation 2002-2005 and was elected Vice-Chair in 2009. Brady served on the Executive Committee of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) from 2004-2006. He was co-chair (with Gabriela Gonzalez) of the LSC Inspiral Analysis Group 2000-2008 and has been chair of the LSC Data Analysis Software Working Group since 2004. He has received six awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF). His research is currently supported by NSF awards PHY-0701817 and PHY-0600953.
