About Me

Hi! My name is Zach Nasipak. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at Brown University. For my research I model black hole binaries known as extreme-mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs), which are promising gravitational wave sources for the upcoming space-based LISA detector. I completed my PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2020 under the supervision of Dr. Charles R. Evans. In spring 2021 I will join the Gravitational Astrophysics at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center as a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow.
