General Relativistic Magnetohydrodynamics
RIT associate professor Joshua Faber received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and has spent over a decade researching the relativistic dynamics of compact object binaries. His work has focused on both binary neutron stars as well as black hole-neutron star binaries, evolved in post-Newtonian, conformally flat, and fully general relativistic gravitational formalisms. As an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow, he was part of a team responsible for fully general relativistic calculations of merging BH-NS binaries, studies of magnetohydrodynamic flows in the presence of puncture BHs, and the construction of highly accurate BH-NS initial data for use in dynamical simulations. His research interests include high-performance computing, relativistic dynamics, and the simulation of hydrodynamical compact object binary mergers.
