I am an assistant professor working for the Physics department at San Diego State University. I firmly believe in the educational value of having hands on experience with scientific research for undergrad or graduate students. I am constantly looking for new ways to involve my students in my research. My research interests include nucleon-nucleon interactions, nuclear reactions, density functional theory and chiral effective field theories. Also, I'm particularly interested on uncertainty quantification (UQ) of nuclear structure and nuclear reaction calculations stemming from statistical and systematic errors of the nucleon-nucleon interaction.
