There are three strands to my research:
- 1. nonperturbative nucleon structure;
- 2. heavy quark flavour physics on the lattice;
- 3. Casimir effects in classical fluids.
Opportunities for undergraduate research
If you are interested in working with me on any of these topics, and others, please get in touch! If you are particularly interested in computational physics, data analysis (especially applications of machine learning), and the structure of the basic building blocks of all nuclear matter we see around us, then working on nonperturbative nucleon structure might be for you. Familiarity with python and experience with quantum mechanics is helpful, but no knowledge of the details of nucleon structure is necessary!
If fluid mechanics and statistic physics is more your thing, then extending our work on fluctuation-induced long-range forces offers several opportunities for you. You will need some familiarity with partial differential equations, and some experience with Mathematica, to study long-range forces in nanostructures. Numerical studies of more complicated systems could lead you into research on long-range forces in relativistic fluids, or even the quark-gluon plasma.
I have been awarded a National Science Foundation CAREER grant.
In central Michigan at the end of July? Come to my plenary on "Recent developments in x-dependent structure calculations" at the lattice conference, at Michigan State University. See you there!
I will be heading to the DNP in Pittsburgh in October to give an invited overview talk on Theoretical approaches to nucleon structure, as part of the Mini-Symposium on Theoretical Approaches to Nucleon Structure. See you there!
