Raúl Briceño obtained a Ph.D. in theoretical nuclear physics from the University of Washington in Seattle. He recently became a professor at Old Dominion University, with a joint position at the Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics of the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab). Before accepting his most recent appointment, he was JLab’s Nathan Isgur fellow. His research interests include hadron spectroscopy, few-hadron systems, and the description of nuclear reactions directly from quantum chromodynamics (QCD)—the underlying theory of quarks and gluons. He was the 2017 recipient of the Kenneth G. Wilson award for his contributions to the study of resonances using lattice QCD.
