I am interested in nuclear matter under extreme conditions of high temperature and density and nuclei at high energy.
I am working on many-body quantum chromo dynamics in the high energy limit, studying for example the evolution of Wilson line correlators with changing gluon momentum fraction x in hadrons. This evolution is governed by renormalization group equations within the color-glass-condensate effective theory. The solutions to these equations allow for the computation of a wide range of multi-particle final states in deeply inelastic scattering and hadronic collisions at e.g. RHIC, LHC and a future electron-ion collider (EIC), offering insight into the properties of hadronic matter at high energy and in particular gluon saturation.
I am also working on relativistic viscous hydrodynamic simulations of heavy-ion collisions aimed at revealing the transport properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), Monte-Carlo methods for describing the evolution of light and heavy hard partons in the QGP, and various other topics related to the physics of heavy-ion collisions.
