Academic research

Here's a non-exhaustive list of physics topics that I did research on during graduate school and as a postdoc.

  • Quantum chromodynamics
    Aka, how the tiniest particles we have experimental evidence of (quarks and gluons) stick together and how that's different today from shortly after the big bang.
  • Ultracold quantum gases
    At close to zero Kelvin, quantum gases exhibit special properties that allow experimentalists to manipulate them almost at will—a theorist's dream! These are ideal systems to benchmark theoretical techniques, and they show exciting behaviors in their own right.


You can find my scientific papers on INSPIRE. Note that they were published under my maiden name, Tina K. Herbst.
