Bayesian parameter estimation for relativistic heavy-ion collisions
I develop and apply a Bayesian method for quantitatively estimating properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), an extremely hot and dense state of fluid-like matter created in relativistic heavy-ion
Extracting the temperature dependence in high- p⊥ particle energy loss
The suppression of high-p⊥ particles is one of the main signatures of parton energy loss during its passing through the QGP medium, and is reasonably reproduced by different theoretical models.
Nonhydrodynamic quasinormal modes and equilibration of a baryon dense holographic QGP with a critical point
We compute the homogeneous limit of non-hydrodynamic quasinormal modes (QNM's) of a phenomenologically realistic Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton (EMD) holographic model for the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) that
Exploring the initial stages in heavy-ion collisions with high- p⊥ theory and data
Traditionally, low-pT sector is used to infer the features of initial stages before QGP thermalization. On the other hand, recently acquired wealth of high-pT experimental data paves the way to
( 3+1 )-dimensional anisotropic fluid dynamics with a lattice QCD equation of state
Anisotropic hydrodynamics improves upon standard dissipative fluid dynamics by treating certain large dissipative corrections nonperturbatively. Relativistic heavy-ion collisions feature two such
Temperature Effect on Shear and Bulk Viscosities of QCD Matter
With developing a scheme to determine the thermal width of a pion in a medium, we investigate the shear and bulk viscosities and their ratios to entropy density. We calculate the temperature
Holography in Quark-Gluon Plasma and Neutron Stars
In this thesis, QCD is studied from three different directions, with one overarching theme: holography. The holographic duality allows certain strongly coupled QFTs to be described in terms of much
Predictions for multiplicities and flow harmonics in 5.44 TeV Xe+Xe collisions at the CERN Large Hadron Collider
We present the next-to-leading-order event-by-event EKRT model predictions for the centrality dependence of the charged hadron multiplicity in the pseudorapidity interval $|\eta|\le 0.5$, and for the


Constraining the Equation of State of Superhadronic Matter from Heavy-Ion Collisions.
The equation of state of QCD matter for temperatures near and above the quark-hadron transition (∼165  MeV) is inferred within a Bayesian framework through the comparison of data from the
Quantifying properties of hot and dense QCD matter through systematic model-to-data comparison
We systematically compare an event-by-event heavy-ion collision model to data from the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Using a general Bayesian method, we probe multiple model parameters including
Applying Bayesian parameter estimation to relativistic heavy-ion collisions: simultaneous characterization of the initial state and quark-gluon plasma medium
We quantitatively estimate properties of the quark-gluon plasma created in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions utilizing Bayesian statistics and a multiparameter model-to-data comparison. The
Determining Fundamental Properties of Matter Created in Ultrarelativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions
Posterior distributions for physical parameters describing relativistic heavy-ion collisions, such as the viscosity of the quark-gluon plasma, are extracted through a comparison of hydrodynamic-based

We present results for the equation of state in ( 2 + 1 )-flavor QCD using the highly improved staggered quark action and lattices with temporal extent N τ = 6 , 8, 10, and 12. We show that these
Fluctuating glasma initial conditions and flow in heavy ion collisions.
We compute initial conditions in heavy ion collisions within the color glass condensate framework by combining the impact parameter dependent saturation model with the classical Yang-Mills
Pre-equilibrium evolution effects on heavy-ion collision observables
In order to investigate the importance of pre-equilibrium dynamics on relativistic heavy-ion collision observables, we match a highly non-equilibrium early evolution stage, modeled by free-streaming
Alternative ansatz to wounded nucleon and binary collision scaling in high-energy nuclear collisions
We introduce a new parametric initial-condition model for high-energy nuclear collisions based on eikonal entropy deposition via a ``reduced-thickness'' function. The model simultaneously describes
Centrality dependence of pi, K, and p production in Pb-Pb collisions at root s(NN)=2.76 TeV
In this paper measurements are presented of pi(+/-), K-+/-, p, and (p) over bar production at midrapidity (vertical bar y vertical bar < 0.5), in Pb-Pb collisions at root s(NN) = 2.76 TeV as a
Centrality dependence of the charged-particle multiplicity density at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt[s(NN)] = 2.76 TeV.
The centrality dependence of the charged-particle multiplicity density at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt[s_{NN}]=2.76  TeV is found to be similar to that observed at lower collision energies.
