Jared Vanasse, Ph.D.

Visiting Assistant Professor

Jared Vanasse received his Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and he has held postdoctoral positions at Duke University and Ohio University. His primary research interest is in the application of effective field theories to few-body systems with a focus on their application to the properties of atomic nuclei.

Vanasse is also involved in the search for violations of fundamental symmetries. The search for violations of fundamental symmetries is a possible avenue alongside the Large Hadron Collider to find signals of new physics beyond the standard model of particle physics. The search for violations of fundamental symmetries also offers a unique probe to understand the interactions between neutrons and protons in atomic nuclei. Recently, he has been involved with calculations for a possible future experiment at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory at Duke University at an upgraded high-intensity gamma-ray source facility searching for violations of fundamental symmetries.
