I am interested in theoretical nuclear physics in the MeV energy scale, studying structure and reaction aspects of "exotic" nuclei. Exotic here stands for nuclei that are not naturally occurring in earth, they exhibit novel properties and are in general difficult to be measured experimentally. It is then necessary to develop nuclear theories, methods and models that are predictive and can provide reliable data in areas that data do not exist. I am also interested in nuclear data applications in multi-scale physics problems, such as energy deposition in material and material responses. I am utilizing supercomputing facilities to perform these numerical studies.
