The group uses photo-nuclear reactions with incident photon energies from 300 MeV to 12 GeV to test fundamental symmetries of nature, and to test predictions from low-energy quantum chromodynamics (QCD).   The group currently works at Jefferson Lab in Newport News VA, and at the MAMI accelerator at Johannes Gutenburg University in Mainz, Germany.  Please explore the links on the right to learn more about the research the group is doing.

Summer 2017
