Jorge Pullin (born 1963 in Argentina) is the Horace Hearne Chair in theoretical Physics at the Louisiana State University, known for his work on black hole collisions and quantum gravity.
Jorge Pullin attended the University of Buenos Aires (electrical engineering) for two years before leaving for Instituto Balseiro in Argentina to finish a M.Sc. in Physics (1986). Then he moved to the University of Cordoba to pursue his Ph.D. which was submitted in 1988 to the Instituto Balseiro; his advisor was Reinaldo Gleiser.
Pullin's wife Gabriela Gonzalez is also a gravitational physics researcher; she and Pullin met at a gravitational physics meeting in Cordoba, Argentina. Pullin and Gonzalez spent six years living apart while Pullin was at Penn State and Gonzalez held a position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a situation that was resolved when they both were hired by LSU.
