Nuclear Theory Group   |   Department of Physics

Nuclear Theory at the College of William and Mary

Our group performs theoretical calculations relevant to nuclear and hadron physics within the theory of quarks and gluons, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). We have a particular interest in the numerical technique known as lattice QCD. We mentor postdoctoral researchers and graduate and undergraduate students pursuing research in nuclear theory, and we maintain a close connection with the nearby Jefferson Lab, where we are members of the Theory Center.



Faculty opening in nuclear theory

We currently have an opening for a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in nuclear theory, with an emphasis on hadron spectroscopy.
Apply here, before Jan 16th 2023.

Congratulations to Archana Radhakrishnan

Archana recently successfully defended her PhD thesis entited, Radiative Width of K*(892) from Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics, and will now take up a postdoctoral position at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai, India. She is pictured at Commencement alongside advisor Dudek, demonstrating the patented "analog Zoom" technology. Congratulations, Archana!


Congratulations to Arkaitz Rodas

Postdoc Arkaitz Rodas has been awarded the Nathan Isgur Distinguished Research Fellowship at the Jefferson Lab Theory Center, which he will take up in the Fall of 2022. Congratulations, Arkaitz!


Congratulations to Tanjib Khan

Tanjib recently successfully defended his PhD thesis entited, Calculation of Gluon PDF in the Nucleon using Pseudo-PDF Formalism with Wilson Flow Technique in LQCD, and will now take up a junior faculty position at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Congratulations, Tanjib!
