Brent's research is related to various aspects of pulsar timing. As a member of the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational waves (NANOGrav), he has primarily worked on projects to characterize the noise in pulsar timing array data, particularly the contributions from the interstellar medium with both real and simulated data. This work has also involved developing and using the Pulsar Signal Simulator Python package, as well as other custom data analysis software pipelines.
