Aurora Imaging Technology Inc. today named Nobel Laureate Professor Russell A. Hulse its newest advisory board member. Hulse recently retired as a principal research physicist after 30 years at the U.S. Department of Energy Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory at Princeton University, and is now a regental professor at the University of Texas at Dallas.

“Having Dr. Hulse, a scientist of impeccable credentials, especially in numerical modeling, is a tremendous boost of the company’s ongoing research and development to further our technology,” said Olivia Ho Cheng, president and CEO.

In 1993, Hulse and his colleague Dr. Joseph Taylor, also from Princeton University, were awarded the Nobel Prize in physics, for their discovery of the first “binary pulsar,” a celestial system which has provided important observational confirmations of Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
