Research Interests

I plan to continue my research in experimental high energy physics, in order to study the nature of the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions, and to determine the basic properties of the matter created in heavy-ion collisions. In the longer term future, I plan to contribute either to the Electron Ion Collider (EIC) to study the gluon role in the nucleus and nucleon structure functions, or to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN to explore the physics beyond the Standard Model.
