Research

My research interests are in lattice perturbation theory, nonrelativistic heavy quark effective theories for the lattice and applications of statistical field theory. Much of my research has been carried out with the HPQCD Collaboration, working on perturbative calculations in nonrelativistic QCD. For a technical overview of lattice perturbation theory in heavy quark physics, you can find my review here. You may also want to visit latticeperturbationtheory.org.

Recently I have been working on applications of lattice QCD to nuclear physics with Kostas Orginos. I was awarded the 2013 JSA Postdoctoral Research Grant to help undertake this work (more coverage here and here).

I also have research interests in statistical field theory and am currently working on a project in hydrodynamics.

Here is a list of my publications and conference proceedings on the arXiv. If you prefer, there is also a similar list from INSPIRE.

Over the last two years or so I have given talks and seminars for:

- Theory seminar, York University, Toronto
- MCFP Workshop on Lattice Parton Physics, University of Maryland
- Colloquium at Mississippi State University
- Nuclear Theory seminar, LBNL
- High Energy Physics seminar, UC Berkeley
- Soft Matter seminar, UMass Amherst
- Plenary talk at Lattice 2013, Mainz, Germany (slides available)
- JLab User's Group Annual Meeting, Postdoc Prize talk
- QWG 2013 at IHEP, Beijing (slides available)
- the MIT Lattice Club webinar, hosted by the LNS, MIT
- Lattice 2012, Cairns, Australia
- the HEP seminar at the Department of Physics, OSU
- Beautiful Mesons and Baryons on the Lattice, at ECT*, Trento (slides available)
- the lattice QCD seminar at Jefferson National Lab

and participated in:

- Lattice QCD Meets Experiment, Fermilab
- CKM 2012, Cincinnati, USA
