Nuclear Theory

The Nuclear Theory group is headed by Prof. Mike Birse.

The research interests range from low-energy nuclear structure to the frontier where nuclear and particle physics overlap. We focus on ‘fundamental’ approaches to nuclear physics, linking it to quantum chromodynamics, and have particular expertise in the areas of effective field theory and microscopic many-body theory. Web links are provided under individual researchers profiles.
