My research interests include all aspects of the modern theory of strong interactions - Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD), and its applications to the description of experimentally accessible phenomena.
I am particularly interested in high energy nuclear physics, especially the theory of relativistic heavy ion collisions. One of the projects that I am working on at present is the "Chiral Magnetic Effect" (CME recent overview and references). CME is the phenomenon of electric charge separation induced by topological configurations of gluon fields in the presence of magnetic field; both are present in heavy ion collisions.
