I am a visiting assistant professor in the physics department
at Reed College
in Portland Oregon.
Fall 2017: Electrodynamics I
Spring 2018: Electrodynamics II
My main research interest is in ab initio nuclear structure calculations of medium-mass nuclei, using the in-medium similarity renormalization group (IM-SRG) technique.
These slides from a talk I gave at the 2017 ARIS conference in Keystone Colorado should give a flavor of what I do.
Some recent publications (a more exaustive list is in my CV):
"Ab initio electromagnetic observables with the in-medium similarity renormalization group"
"Saturation with chiral interactions and consequences for finite nuclei"
Phys. Rev. C
"Light Axial Vectors, Nuclear Transitions, and the 8Be Anomaly
Phys. Rev. D
"A nucleus-dependent valence-space approach to nuclear structure" --
Phys. Rev. Lett.
"Ground and excited states of doubly open-shell nuclei from ab initio valence-space Hamiltonians" --
Phys. Rev C (R),

Nuclear Shell Model may be found here
