I study Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics.  This research is primarily done in conjunction with the PHENIX experiment, which studies Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), a theory of the nature of the fundamental force known as the strong force which binds nuclei and other elementary particles, under the most extreme conditions of high temperature and density ever achieved in a laboratory.  Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics is  a combination of particle and nuclear physics in which heavy nuclei are collided at large particle accelerators like RHIC and the LHC at energies comparable to the highest that are achievable even for elementary particle collisions.


I have two daughters Ava and Anna, and my wife is named Jen.

I am from Western PA and therefore, a loyal fan of the Steelers.
