Doug Toussaint

Professor of Physics

Classification: Primary Faculty

Education: Ph.D. Princeton University 1978

Fields of Study: High Energy Physics

Research Interests: 

Numerical Simulation of Quantum Chromodynamics. Our aim is to calculate the hadronic factors in elementary particle processes, both to learn about the structure of the elementary particles and to determine fundamental parameters of the standard model.
