Research Interests

Dr. Quaglioni performs first principles (or, ab initio) calculations of light nuclei. Her goal is to accurately describe both the structure (bound, excited states, narrow resonances) of light nuclei and, most importantly, their reactions in thermonuclear environments (such as in stellar interiors or at terrestrial fusion facilities), starting from the nucleon degrees of freedom and accurate nuclear interactions among them. Dr. Quaglioni's present research interest revolve around the development of theoretical and computational tools to reach a fundamental description of light-ion fusion reactions important for astrophysics modeling and fusion energy applications, such as the ab initio no-core shell model / resonating-group method (NCSM/RGM).
