Harald P. Pfeiffer Astrophysicist
Harald Pfeiffer’s research aims for a deeper understanding of black holes and Einstein’s theory of General Relativity through numerical simulations. Beyond the primary focus on numerical simulations, he is also interested in applications to gravitational wave observations, the development of novel numerical techniques, and visualization.
