Hadronic Structure with E-M Probes

The aim of our research is to study and better understand the structure of hadrons, the building-blocks of matter. Hadrons are composed of smaller, more fundamental particles, the quarks and gluons. But it is poorly understood how quark and gluon interactions give rise to the observed properties of hadrons, making the nature of the strong force where quark confinement dominates one of the top 10 unsolved problems in physics.  

In this effort, we carry co-spokesmanship roles in several experiments at Jefferson Lab, related to the examination of hadronic structure using e-m probes.
