Research Interests

Research in theoretical particle physics with focus on theory and phenomenology of strong interactions, and the understanding how the QCD quark & gluon degrees of freedom make up hadrons. The research interests include the following topics:

  • Partonic structure of hadrons in high energy reactions
  • Form factors, parton distributions and generalized parton distributions
  • Transverse parton momentum dependent distribution and fragmentation functions
  • Single spin and azimuthal asymmetries in high energy collisions involving hadrons
  • Spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry, and consequences for parton structure
  • Non-perturbative calculations in effective chiral field theories and models
  • Pentaquarks and tetraquarks in QCD

Experience

  • 2008-present: Associate Professor, Department of Physics, University of Connecticut
  • 2003-2008: Research Associate, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany
  • 2001-2003: Research Associate, Universita degli Studi di Pavia, Italy

Education

  • Ph.D. (Dr.rer.nat.), Physics, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany 2001
  • M.Sc. (Diplom), Physics, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany 1997
