High Energy Nuclear Physics
Dr. Ágnes Mócsy is a theoretical nuclear physicist, who performs research into the fundamental nature of matter. In particular she investigates what happens to quarks, the basic constituents of matter and their interactions in the hot and dense conditions present a few microseconds after the Big Bang. This form of matter, the quark-gluon plasma, is re-created in relativistic collisions of nuclei at the particle accelerator RHIC (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider) at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island. Dr. Mócsy collaborates with Pratt students on visualizing this physics.
