Duncan Brown, the Charles Brightman Endowed Professor of Physics in the College of Arts and Sciences, has been named to the Internet2 Board of Trustees. His three-year term will begin Nov. 1.

A Syracuse faculty member since 2007, Brown has distinguished himself in the fields of gravitational-wave astronomy and astrophysics. As co-leader of the University’s Gravitational-Wave Astronomy Group, he works primarily at the nexus of physics, astronomy and computing. Brown’s contributions to LIGO’s Nobel Prize-winning data have helped open a new window onto physics, astronomy and cosmology, while reframing fundamental questions about the origins and evolution of the universe. Recently, his team contributed to a major discovery: witnessing the collision of two neutron stars in deep space and the resulting afterglow that signified the process of gold being created.
