Research Interests

My primary research area is experimental nuclear and particle physics using electromagnetic probes in the few GeV energy range. Over the years, I have worked at various national and international research laboratories (Yerevan Physics Institute, Armenia, Joint Institute of Nuclear Research, Dubna, Russia, Jefferson Laboratory, Newport News, Va) with a variety of detector systems and different types of beams and targets. My current research interests are focused in the study of the fundamental symmetry breaking phenomena in the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and precision measurements of the fundamental quantities in physics like the proton charge radius.
