Professor Charles Horowitz researches neutron rich dense matter, neutron star crusts, gravitational waves, neutrino interactions in supernova explosions, and laboratory measurements of nuclear properties important for astrophysics.
Associate Professor Jinfeng Liao focuses on the theory of strong interaction (known as Quantum Chromo-Dynamics or QCD) and the phenomenology of high energy nuclear collisions.
Emeritus Professor J. Timothy Londergan studies the interface between high energy and nuclear physics. In particular, he is interested in the quark/gluon structure of the nucleon (proton or neutron), and in how the nucleus can be used to obtain information regarding the nucleon's structure.
Assssociate Professor Emilie Passamer researches studies of QCD in the non-perturbative domain using dispersive and effective field theory techniques.
Professor Adam Szczepaniak's research interests include elementary particle physics and nuclear physics (theoretical).
