Nuclear Physics


Our experimental efforts are focused on heavy-ion collisions in the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory and on proton-proton and heavy-ion collisions in the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Our theoretical efforts span topics that include heavy ion physics, small-xQCD, and nuclear structure. This group is funded by the NSF and DOE, and the theorists are important members of funded national networks, including the TALENT training initiative.
