Jianwei Qiu
Associate Director for Theoretical & Computational Physics
Theory Center Director, Jefferson Lab

As the associate director for Theoretical and Computational Physics, Jianwei Qiu oversees a broad program of theoretical research in support of the physics studied by the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) experimental program.

Prior to joining Jefferson Lab in October 2016, Qiu had been a senior physicist and the Nuclear Theory Group Leader at Brookhaven National Lab, and a Brookhaven Professor at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York.

Qiu received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics in 1987 from Columbia University in New York City, and was a postdoctoral research associate at Argonne National Lab and at the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University. In 1991, Qiu joined the faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University in Ames, where he held positions as an assistant, associate and full professor of physics and astronomy. He moved to Brookhaven National Lab/Stony Brook University in 2010.

His research focus is in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and its applications in high-energy particle and nuclear physics, in particular, in theoretical and phenomenological study of the strong force.
