Xiaochun He
I am currently working on two research projects. The first project is to study the matter properties at extreme temperature and density by colliding relativistic heavy ions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Lab. The second project is to study the properties of cosmic ray radiation and the associated applications.

Murad Sarsour
I am interested in probing the spin structure of the proton. I am a member of the PHENIX Collaboration at Brookhaven National Laboratory and the Neutron Spin Rotation collaboration at NIST.

Megan Connors
I study how high energy particles interact with the Quark Gluon Plasma by measuring particle correlation at PHENIX at RHIC and reconstructing jets with ALICE at the LHC. I am also involved in the development and eventual construction of the hadronic calorimeter for the new jet detector at RHIC known as sPHENIX.

Adjunct Faculty

Brant Johnson
Working on relativistic heavy ion collisions, particles & fields physics (spin of the proton), and beam and plasma physics (development of plasma-based ion sources).

Tristan Haseler
I am interested in studying heavy flavor physics in high energy nuclei-nuclei collisions. My current work is study bottom quark production in p+p collisions at center of mass energy of 510 GeV/c^2.

Cheuk-Ping Wong
I’m interested in simulation study of RICH detector for particle identification in forward region at Electron-Ion Collider.
