Current research topics apply QCD phenomenology to high energy hadronic interactions, spin structure of amplitudes and model-independent techniques to probe physics at the partonic level. Our "hard probes" collaboration is presently undertaking a systematic investigation of short-distance processes which probe regions of space-time in heavy ion collisions where a quark-gluon plasma could be produced. QCD-based calculations are extrapolated to collision energies to be explored by the Brookhaven Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, RHIC, and the CERN Large Hadron Collider, LHC. I am also developing wavelet transform methods to extract space-time signals from data containing multiscale information.

Current research interests include measurements of the electronic structure in heavy-fermion metals and oxide superconductors using quantum oscillatory phenomena in high magnetic fields.
