My research is primarily in nuclear physics, in particular heavy ion reaction theory. My research office in in the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory on the Campus of Michigan State University. During the last few years I have also developed interests in energy and the environment, as well as computational physics and cyber-enabled research. Until May 2013 I served as the founding director of the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (iCER).
