Biography

Abraham Harte received a B.S. degree in physics from Caltech and a Ph.D. in physics from the Pennsylvania State University. After postdoctoral work at the University of Chicago and at the Albert Einstein Institute in Germany, he moved to DCU as an assistant professor in mathematical sciences. His research is centered on gravitational physics, particularly the theory of motion, gravitational waves, and gravitational lensing.
