Hello.

I am Hersh Singh, a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical physics at the InQubator for Quantum Simulation at the University of Washington, Seattle. I am also affiliated with the Institute for Nuclear Theory.

I am interested in studies of strongly coupled quantum field theories, with applications to nuclear and high-energy physics, using the powerful tools of lattice field theory, effective field theory and quantum information science.

Before this, I got a

Some of my recent work includes

More details on my research are here and a complete list of publications can be found here (or on INSPIRE). During my final year of grad school at Duke University, I taught a mini-course on renormalization group (Spring 2020), which I thoroughly enjoyed.
