I am co-spokesperson of seven past (E93-050,
E08-025), and future 12 GeV (E12-06-114)
experiments at the Thomas Jefferson
National Accelerator Facility in Newport News VA.
My Research is in nuclear physics, focussed on the topic of Compton
Scattering from the proton. In this process we use one high
energy photon to hit a proton, and with a second photon we take a
picture of the wiggling internal structure of the proton.
An introduction to this subject for a general audience can be
found on my Web Poster on Virtual
Presently, we are focussing on creating 3-D images of the
quarks and gluons inside the proton and the atomic nucleus by
the "Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering" reaction.
A technical summary can be found at http://hallaweb.jlab.org/experiment/DVCS/
I am also active in developing the design and physics motivation for
a future Electron-Ion Collider.
My research is currently funded by the U.S. Department of Energy
Office of Science and Brookhaven National Laboratory
Previous funding includes the U.S. National Science Foundation and
the French CNRS/IN2P3 and ANR.
