Theoretical Particle and Nuclear Physics

Prof. Nora Brambilla

Research Field

Our research is focused on Effective Field Theories (EFTs) and Renormalization Techniques with applications in Particle Physics and Hadronic/Nuclear Physics. Effective quantum field theories are the state-of-the-art tools for analyzing physical systems that contain many different energy or momentum scales. Such systems are the rule, rather than the exception, from the high-energy domain of Particle Physics to the low-energy domain of Nuclear Physics.

Specifically we construct and apply new effective field theories to deal with processes of strong interactions and QCD, Standard Model and beyond the Standard Model physics. At T30f we study non-relativistic effective field theories with applications to heavy-quark processes and quarkonium physics at accelerator experiments (BELLE, BESIII, LHC and PANDA experiments); EFTs for strong interactions at finite temperature and density with applications to processes taking place at heavy-ion experiments at RHIC and LHC, as well as in cosmological environments. Furthermore we work on high-order perturbative calculations in QCD with applications to precision determination of certain Standard Model parameters (quark masses, strong coupling constant) as well as non-perturbative and computational methods in field theory with application to non-perturbative QCD and the confinement mechanism.
