I currently share a grant with Prof. U. van Kolck and we often collaborate and share students.  While my research is focused on the development and application of effective field theories (EFTs), my interests are far ranging and I am always willing to be distracted. The research areas that are getting most of my attention at the moment are the application of SCET to transverse momentum dependent distributions (TMDs) and low energy EFTs of nucleon interactions. However, I am also involved in a number of other interesting projects that range further afield: the Scharnhorst effect, density perturbations during inflation, and the scattering of neutral atoms from a charged nanotube. I also occasionally dable in econophysics where I am interested in the phenomenology of derivative pricing.
