Russell Alan Hulse (born November 28, 1950) is an American physicist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics, shared with his thesis advisor Joseph Hooton Taylor Jr., "for the discovery of a new type of pulsar, a discovery that has opened up new possibilities for the study of gravitation".


He received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1975.


While working on his Ph.D. dissertation, he was a scholar in 1974 at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico of Cornell University.


An approximation of this radiant energy is described by the formula of the quadrupolar radiation of Albert Einstein (1918).


In 1979, researchers announced measurements of small acceleration effects of the orbital movements of a pulsar.


He has also worked on science education, and in 2003 joined the University of Texas at Dallas as a visiting professor of physics and of mathematics and science education.


In 1993, Hulse and Taylor shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the first binary pulsar.


Hulse was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2003, and is cited in the American Men and Women of Science.


In 2004, Hulse joined University of Texas at Dallas and became the Founding Director of UT Dallas Science and Engineering Education Center (SEEC).In July 2007 Hulse joined the Aurora Imaging Technology advisory board.
