Hadron Spectroscopy Research Group

I perform research work on the spectroscopy of hadrons using a variety of theoretical techniques. Current focus is on using lattice QCD methods to determine properties of meson resonances.

I work closely with staff scientists and postdocs at Jefferson Lab as well as my local team at Old Dominion University. We also collaborate with other interested scientists within the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration.
