Avery Broderick

Delaney Family John Archibald Wheeler Chair at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and associate professor at the University of Waterloo

Avery Broderick is the Delaney Family John Archibald Wheeler Chair in Theoretical Physics at Perimeter Institute. He is an astrophysicist with broad research interests and a key member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration that revealed the first image of a black hole horizon to the world this past April. He examines how black holes accrete matter, launch the ultra-relativistic outflows observed, and he probes the nature of gravity in their vicinity. Broderick is a co-winner (with EHT collaborators) of the Diamond Achievement Award and the 2020 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics. He came to Waterloo Region in 2011 through a joint appointment between the independent Perimeter Institute and the University of Waterloo. Prior to that, he earned his PhD at the California Institute of Technology (2004) and held postdoctoral positions at the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (2004-07) and the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (2007-11).
