Research interests

Quantum chromodynamics, parton distributions, field theories on the light front, internal structure of hadrons, spin and orbital angular momentum, energy-momentum tensor

I study various aspects of quantum chromodynamics at low and medium energy, together with their experimental consequences. My current research interests include the theoretical description of the hadron internal structure, the experimental consequences of the different angular momentum correlations, and the study of the energy-momentum tensor in gauge theories.
