I study the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD),
which governs the physics of the nucleus.
I'm interested in using QCD as a quantitative tool to improve
Standard Model phenomenology, explore flavor physics, and search for new
physics beyond the Standard Model.
I am a member of the USQCD, UKQCD, and ILGTI research collaborations.
My colleagues and I were awarded the
2012 Ken Wilson Award
for "...the first reliable results in weak kaon decays."
