Main Content

I am a theoretical physicist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

My work mainly focuses on understanding the dynamics of strongly interacting systems with an emphasis on theoretical nuclear and particle physics. I explore non-perturbative aspects of quantum field theory by using and developing a variety of tools that range from the more mathematical (such as asymptotic analysis) to the more computational (such as lattice Monte-Carlo methods).

I am also interested in the critical phenomena around the QCD phase transition, which separates the quark gluon plasma phase with the ordinary nuclear matter at extremely high temperatures and is probed by the heavy ion collision experiments.
