Brief Bio

Dr. Stein's main research interests are in testing Einstein's theory of gravity (general relativity) using black holes and the gravitational waves they emit when black holes smash together. Testing general relativity (GR) involves doing numerical simulations of these black hole mergers, in GR and in theories beyond GR.
