Ryan Christopher Lynch

Graduate Student, Physics Graduate Student

I was raised in Chicago before attending the University of Notre Dame to receive an undergraduate degree in physics.  I also spent a year as a visiting student at the University of Oxford.  Outside of physics, I enjoy working out, watching sports, and playing guitar.
 

Research interests: 

My research interests focus on different aspects of strong gravity systems and the gravitational radiation that they produce.  My research thus far has involved both working on LIGO match-filtered searches for gravitational wave ringdowns and simulating the binary coalescence of neutron stars using the ADM(3+1) formalism of general relativity.
