Theoretical Nuclear Physics

The group works on understanding nuclear structure and nuclear reactions, and how their properties arise from the underlying nuclear forces. 

The group's interests range from reactions of the lightest nuclei, through the structures appearing across the range of available nuclear masses, up to mechanisms for the formation of superheavy nuclei, and beyond to the properties of neutron stars.  The group works closely with experimental colleagues to understand the nuclear processes happening in stable and radioactive ion beam facilities around the world, and in stellar nuclear processes further afield.
