Current Research

I am an experimentalist and phenomenologist in hadronic physics. He received the doctoral degree from the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute in 1969 and worked as an associate research scientist and research scientist at PNPI before joining the Physics Department at GW in 1997. I have been a full research professor there since 2009. He is the primary person keeping up the much-referenced SAID database, providing a support of experimental programs associated with analyses of preliminary experimental data and help in the planning of new measurements. My recent research has focused on multichannel partial-wave analyses.
