## Research interests

• Quark and gluon structure of nuclei
• Generalized parton distributions
• Medium modification of quark/gluon structure and the EMC effect
• Short range correlations

I'm especially interested in the potential for an Electron Ion Collider to investigate the quark/gluon structure of nuclei, and what such an investigation can tell us about the nature of nuclear medium modifications, and the interplay between nucleon and quark/gluon degrees of freedom.
