Dr. Jeremy Holt
Assistant professor of physics


Professor Holt received his PhD from Stony Brook University under the supervision of Gerald E. Brown. He pursued postdoctoral research at the Technical University of Munich and the University of Washington in Seattle. Prof. Holt studies the structure, phases, and dynamics of strongly interacting matter through the low-energy realization of QCD, chiral effective field theory.

Taylor Whitehead
Graduate research assistant


Taylor Whitehead received a BS in Physics from Lamar University in 2015 and an MS in Physics from Texas A&M University in 2018. Taylor is currently working on the development and application of microscopic optical model potentials for nucleon-nucleus scattering and reactions based on chiral two-body and three-body forces.

Eunkyoung Shin
Graduate research assistant


Eunkyoung Shin received a BS in Physics from Pusan National University in 2013 and an MS in Physics from Kyungpook National University in 2016. Eunkyoung started the PhD program at Texas A&M University in 2017 and is currently studying nuclear response functions from chiral effective field theory for applications to neutrino reaction rates in hot and dense matter.
