Research interest(s)/area of expertise

  • Studying the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions 
  • Quantum field theory at finite temperature (including chiral effective field theory) with applications to relativistic heavy-ion physics 
  • 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 
  • Jet and electromagnetic tomography of hot/dense environments, e.g. relativistic heavy-ion collisions 
  • Monte-Carlo simulations, Gaussian Process Emulation, and Bayesian analysis of high-dimensional parameter spaces 
  • Developing highly efficient numerical algorithms for solving physics problems, specifically designed to exploit the full performance present in High Performance Computing (HPC) centers


  • Ph.D. (2016) McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada
