Research interest(s)/area of expertise

  • Studying the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions using computational and theoretical means
  • Employing finite temperature quantum field theory (including chiral effective field theory) to study the QGP physics, specifically using jet and electromagnetic tomography to probe these hot/dense environments 
  • Relativistic dissipative hydrodynamic/magnetohydrodynamics, non-linear dynamics of many-body transport phenomena and kinetic theory with applications to strongly-coupled systems such as the QGP 
  • Developing highly efficient Monte-Carlo simulations, designed to exploit the full perfomance of modern high perfomance computing infrastructure
  • Using Gaussian Process Emulation, Big Data and Bayesian analysis to constrain high-dimensional parameter spaces of simulated QGP
