Ph.D Institution and Year:
CarnegieMellon University 1969
Research Area:
High energy theory and cosmology
Research Interest:
Most of my research has concentrated in high energy and nuclear phenomenology,
especially in the areas which overlap both fields. Much of my work has focused
on the use of symmetries such as chiral symmetry, T/CP invariance, etc. in order
to study fundamental particle interactions. Recently I have focused also on the
use of effective field theoretic (EFT) techniques.
Current research projects include a study one loop quantum gravity as an EFT, on
use of a new type of dispersion relation (sideways) in order to study higher
order effects in the chiral expansion, and on an EFT approach to the
nucleonnucleon parityviolating interaction.
