My research currently focuses on deriving nuclear physics from the underlying theory of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). This relies both on numerical lattice QCD calculations of nuclear properties using high-performance computing, and the application of effective field theory methods both at the hadronic level and at the level of the nuclear structure. Recently, I have also been interested in (i) a way of thinking about QCD which is called light-front or null-plane QCD, which I believe provides novel insights regarding hadronic structure, and (ii) aspects of atomic physics at the interface of two and three spatial dimensions.
