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
Evolution of the mean jet shape and dijet asymmetry distribution of an ensemble of holographic jets in strongly coupled plasma
A bstractSome of the most important experimentally accessible probes of the quark- gluon plasma (QGP) produced in heavy ion collisions come from the analysis of how the shape and energy of sprays of
Temperature dependence of η/s of strongly interacting matter: Effects of the equation of state and the parametric form of (η/s)(T)
We investigate the temperature dependence of the shear viscosity to entropy density ratio $\eta/s$ using a piecewise linear parametrization. To determine the optimal values of the parameters and the
Transport coefficients for the hot quark-gluon plasma at finite chemical potential μB
We calculate transport coefficients of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) within the dynamical quasiparticle model (DQPM) by explicitly computing the parton interaction rates as a function of temperature
Anisotropic hydrodynamic modeling of 200 GeV Au-Au collisions
We compare phenomenological results from 3+1d quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics (aHydroQP) with experimental data collected in RHIC 200 GeV Au-Au collisions. We present comparisons of
Jet Quenching in The Most Vortical Fluid: A Holographic Approach
The STAR collaboration at the RHIC facility has recently announced the exciting discovery of direct evidence for extremely large vorticity in the Quark-Gluon Plasma generated in peripheral
The Effect of Vorticity on QGP Thermodynamics
Currently there is intense interest in the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma produced in peripheral collisions of heavy ions at various facilities, such as the RHIC. In particular, it is essential
Temperature dependence of $\eta/s$: uncertainties from the equation of state
We perform a global model-to-data comparison on Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$ GeV and Pb+Pb collisions at $2.76$ TeV and $5.02$ TeV, using a 2+1D hydrodynamics model with the EKRT initial


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
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
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
Constraining the initial state granularity with bulk observables in Au+Au collisions at \sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=200 GeV
In this paper we conduct a systematic study of the granularity of the initial state of hot and dense QCD matter produced in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions and its influence on bulk
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
Toward a deeper understanding of how experiments constrain the underlying physics of heavy-ion collisions
High-energy heavy ion collisions at RHIC and LHC are complex dynamical phenomena. To understand them one typically relies upon complex numerical simulations that are compared to an array of
Event-by-event fluctuations in perturbative QCD + saturation + hydro model: pinning down QCD matter shear viscosity in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions
We introduce an event-by-event perturbative-QCD + saturation + hydro ("EKRT") framework for ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions, where we compute the produced fluctuating QCD-matter energy
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
We use the semi-analytic model ChemTreeN, coupled to cosmological N-body simulations, to explore how different galaxy formation histories can affect observational properties of Milky Way like
