Research

There are three strands to my research:

For more details of these topics, stay tuned! Or you can read my articles on the arXiv or INSPIRE. You can also find me on Twitter.

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.

Recent news

Several of our papers have recently been accepted for publication, including one in Physical Review Letters. The arXiv version is arXiv:1910.00970.

Old news

Our article was published in Nature. The first percent level determination of the axial coupling of the nucleon from first principles! More information here and here, for example.

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!

We've now had two of our correlation heatmaps make it into the Physical Review Kaleidoscopes, for June 2017 and September 2015.
