I am interested in equilibration in Quantum-Chromodynamics, the theory describing the strong interaction. Experimentally, this can be studied in collisions of heavy nuclei at collider energies. My research is focused on the theoretical modelling of such collisions with Monte Carlo event generators. I have a long-standing interest in the attenuation of energetic probes in these systems, but more recently I am pursuing also a more general approach in trying to model all the relevant dynamics in kinetic theory.
