Background: 

Bruno Coutinho Mundim is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Albert-Einstein-Institut in Germany. He was a postdoctoral researcher with CCRG in 2009-2012. He holds a PhD in Physics from the University of British Columbia (Canada, 2009) and a Bachelors of Science in Physics from the University of Brazilia (Brazil, 2002). His thesis work was in Numerical Studies of Boson Star Binaries. He joined the CCRG's numerical relativity group as a postdoctoral researcher in February 2009. He is currently working on developing and supporting computational tools for the  Xirel and CIGR projects (see the Einstein Toolkit Consortium pages for a overview on these collaborative projects). He is also currently working on development of new binary black-hole initial data with realistic wave content.
