My research interest is trying to understand the microscopic structure and corresponding equation of state properties of warm and hot dense matter with pressures in the Mbar up to the Gbar regime. This is comparable to the interiors of planets and stars as well as transient conditions in contemporary inertial confinement fusion concepts. I participate in experimental campaigns at the National Ignition Facility, the Linac Coherent Light Source, the OMEGA Laser facility and other smaller laser laboratories. My focus is especially on the complicated behavior of carbon and plastic in this very interesting regime of matter.
