Nobuo Sato, a previous Nathan Isgur Fellow in Nuclear Theory at Jefferson Lab, has been awarded a 2020 DOE Early Career Award. The five-year award will be used to develop the next generation of QCD global analysis for hadronic physics, to assimilate information about quantum correlation functions (PDFs, TMDs, GPDs) from experimental data.
Raul Briceno, a Jefferson Lab – Old Dominion University jointly appointed staff member, has been awarded a 2018 DOE Early Career Award. The five-year award will be applied to research on multi-hadron systems via lattice QCD.
Ted Rogers, a Jefferson Lab – Old Dominion University jointly appointed staff member, has been awarded a 2017 DOE Early Career Award. The five-year award will be applied to research on transverse momentum distribution functions.
Christopher Monahan and Yang-Ting Chien, bridge appointments with William and Mary and Georgia State University, respectively, have been awarded <a href="https://science.osti.gov/-/media/early-career/pdf/2022-Early-Career-Res…">DOE Early Career Awards for 2022</a>. Monahan's research will focus on the three-dimensional structure of the proton, using large-scale supercomputing facilities to calculate the properties of protons and neutrons directly from the strong nuclear force. Chien's award is to probe quark matter and hadronization using energy flow substructure, using modern machine learning alogirthms to search for quark-gluon plasma signatures in jets.
