I work on all aspects of theoretical nuclear physics, including its overlaps with particle phenomenology and atomic physics. Current interests include proton structure, effects of quantum chromodynamics in nuclei, effective field theory approaches to nuclei, studies of fundamental symmetries in nuclei, and nuclear reaction theory at low energies.
- Our research explores a wide range of questions in contemporary nuclear theory and related fields, from the description of nuclear few-body systems with quantum chromodynamics (QCD) on the lattice to aspects of nucleon structure and fundamental symmetries to the properties (structure, phase transitions and dynamics) of strongly interacting quantum many-body systems. Our research utilizes tools from effective field theory as well as high-performance computing on leadership class computers.
