QCD theory

Theoretical nuclear and computational physics
Duke University
May 2012 – Present

I currently work with Prof. Steffen Bass in the quantum chromodynamics (QCD) theory group at Duke University. We study the formation and properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a hot and dense phase of matter that is produced in collisions of heavy nuclei. It is postulated that the universe was one large quark-gluon plasma in the first moments after the Big Bang.

It would be futile to attempt to write complete research descriptions here. The reader should understand that the following information is incomplete and oversimplified. However, feel free to email me with questions or peruse the Wikipedia articles I linked to above.
