Our research program is broadly centered around the physics of two themes:
"Protons and Neutrons: Structure and Interactions"
Our efforts have a particular focus on nucleon spin and flavor decomposition, parton distributions and dynamics in nuclei, tests of
the standard model, and improved measurements of fundamental standard model parameters.
"In Search of the New Standard Model"
Defining the parameters of the Standard Model is a high priority of both particle and nuclear physicists. Important advances come from efforts to produce directly new particles at colliders and, alternatively, from precision low-energy measurements, which test the predictions of the theory or which measure the input parameters.
We carry out our experimental program at several national and international laboratories. For more information, please explore our research projects page.
