Enrico Barausse held academic positions at the University of Maryland (US), CITA/University of Guelph (Canada) and Institut d'astrophysique de Paris/CNRS (France) before returning to SISSA where he obtained his PhD degree. His research focuses on the physics and astrophysics of gravitational wave sources. He is the recipient of an ERC consolidator grant to work on tests of general relativity with gravitational waves, and is part of a Research and Innovation Staff Exchange project on a similar topic. He was also the recipient of a Marie Curie Career Integration grant as well as various other smaller grants. He received the 2016 Young Scientist prize of the Italian Society for General Relativity and Gravitation.
