Current research as part of the STAR Experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), focuses on fundamental understanding of the structure of the proton. Researching how particles in highly-energetic interactions collimate into jets, then subsequently fragment, can tell us the quark and gluon makeup of the proton itself.

Additional work is being done in the application of machine-learning algorithms to particle physics analysis (specifically, the Omnifold Algorithm utilizing the Python Keras package).
