RESEARCH

Low energy nuclear physics, fundamental symmetries and precision tests of the Standard Model: My research focuses on solving the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) to unravel aspects of the nuclear strong interactions relevant for fundamental questions about our Universe. Solving QCD will provide essential insight to unanswered questions about astrophysics and cosmology, such as understanding the observed abundance of matter (over anti-matter) and the potential interactions of Dark Matter with matter. The complex nature of QCD requires a numerical solution and so a key aspect of my research is the utilization of high-performance supercomputers to make quantitative connections between this fundamental theory and basic nuclear physics.

Here is a list of my publications from INSPIRE.

TEACHING

Apparantly, a lecture I gave to high school students, as part of George Smoot's Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics Global Teachers' Academy program, has made it onto Youtube. While I find it embarassing to listen to myself talk, you may find it entertaining. Enjoy.
