The Physics Department
at Baylor University supports an ongoing program in elementary
particle physics, both theoretically and experimentally. I
am one of seven faculty in this area, the others being Gerald
Cleaver, Jay Dittmann, Kenichi Hatakeyama, Anzhong Wang, and
B. F. L. Ward. We also welcome Daniel Bolton, who did his Ph.D. work
with Dr. Gerald A. Miller at the University of Washington.
My research in quark
and gluon dynamics lies at the intersection of computer science
technology and particle phenomenology. The numerical technique is
called lattice QCD (QCD=Quantum Chromodynamics). Some of the topics
under investigation are: the various form factors of the neutron and proton,
an investigation of particle polarizabilities on the lattice, and disconnected
quark amplitudes. See Google Scholar for my faculty profile.
See the various links
to the left of the screen to explore the teaching or research aspects
of my work. The link "Papers" will take you to a SLAC
listing of my research papers written while I have been at Baylor.
The "Research" link will give more information on the types of research I am involved in.
Also see the links "Open Text" and "Habitat for Humanity"
for other projects which are of teaching and community interest. I have also posted some
of the photos I took on the recent Baylor higher education workshop
trip to Kurdistan, Iraq, as well as photos I have taken as a short-term missionary in Korea and Ukraine.
