- A Monte Carlo implementation to probe the distribution of linearly polarized gluons and elliptic azimuthal anisotropy in DIS dijet production at high energy:
**MCDijet**; see Refs. arXiv:1809.02615 and arXiv:1508.04438 for details.

**Research Interests: **

- non-perturbative methods of quantum field theory, the exact (functional) renormalization group
- finite temperature field theory
- deconfinement and chiral aspects of Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD) phase transitions, effective models of QCD at finite temperature and density
- non-equilibrium field theory; transport properties, thermalization, non-perturbative particle production in coherent fields
- renormalization group, critical statics and critical dynamics in vicinity of a phase transition
- high energy QCD, structure of nuclei and hadrons, deep inelastic scattering, transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions, three dimensional structure of nucleons and nuclei in momentum and configuration space; phenomenology of high-energy electron-proton/ion, hadron and heavy-ion collision
