High-energy nuclear theory

When nuclear matter is heated beyond two trillion degrees (300 million times of the surface temperature of our sun), it becomes a new state of matter called Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP). The QGP is a strongly coupled plasma of quarks and gluons that displays properties of perfect fluid. It is believed to be the state of the early universe microseconds after the big bang. Today, the only way to create QGP on earth is colliding ultra-relativistic beams of heavy nuclei, as conducted at the U.S. Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) and the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). 

We develop diverse theoretical approaches to probe the QGP properties, such as Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) theory, transport theory, Monte-Carlo simulation and machine learning techniques. Research topics include nuclear modification of jets and heavy quarks, jet-induced medium excitation, hadronization mechanism and hadron chemistry, etc. Our goal is to establish a comprehensive theoretical and computational platform that can systematically compare theoretical predictions to experimental data, from which one can understand properties of nuclear force as well as strongly coupled system.
