Dr Adam Pound is a Royal Society University Research Fellow within Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I received my PhD from the University of Guelph under the supervision of Eric Poisson, followed by a postdoctoral position at Guelph and McMaster. I have been here at Southampton since 2011, first as an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow, then as a Senior Research Fellow with Leor Barack, and now as a Royal Society University Research Fellow.

Research interests

In the past I have worked on diverse topics including phase transitions in polymers and transport properties in condensed matter. However, my research focus has been on the motion of relatively small objects in strongly curved spacetimes. I am currently working on high-accuracy models of the motion of, and gravitational waves emitted by, a solar-mass neutron star or black hole orbiting a supermassive black hole in a galactic core. These models will be necessary to extract the parameters of such systems from gravitational waveforms detected by the planned gravitational wave detector eLISA.
