The research field I work in can be loosely described as applied nuclear physics.

My current projects are:
  • Nuclear astrophysics with radioactive and stable ion beams
  • Radiation detector development for neutron induced fission measurements
  • Organic scintillator development

Most of the experiments are carried out at national and international laboratories (LANL, LLNL, NSCL/FRIB and TRIUMF).
