Background: 

RIT assistant professor Yosef Zlochower received his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002, and has spent the past decade studying numerical evolutions of black-hole spacetimes. His work has mainly focused on numerical evolutions of multiple black hole spacetimes. He was one of the principle developers of the breakthrough "moving punctures" approach to evolving multiple black holes in full numerical relativity. He has since spent his time studying black hole dynamics, including recoils, spin and orbital precession, spin flips, and generating waveform templates for LIGO data analysis.
