Research interest(s)/area of expertise

  • Studying the strongly interacting medium probed by high-energy collisions involving at least one nucleus
  • Employing quantum field theory (including at high temperature and/or density) and effective field theory to study the nuclear medium using calibrated tomographic probes, such as jet and electromagnetic radiation. 
  • Relativistic dissipative hydrodynamic/magnetohydrodynamics, non-linear dynamics of many-body transport phenomena and kinetic theory with applications to strongly-coupled systems, such as the quark gluon plasma in heavy-ion collisions 
  • 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 nuclear matter
