I am presently funded by a Polonez fellowship DEC-2015/19/P/ST2/03333 of the
National Science Center, Poland (Narodowe Centrum Nauki), receiving funding
from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 665778.

A description of my project, "Dissipative properties of strongly interacting matter
formed in heavy-ion collisions", for general public can be found here, whereas
connoisseurs of heavy-ion physics may be interested in the actual research plan.

So far the project has resulted in the following papers:

  1. Dynamical freeze-out criterion in hydrodynamical description of \(Au+Au\) collisions
    at \(\sqrt{s_{AA}}=200\) GeV and \(Pb+Pb\) collisions at \(\sqrt{s_{AA}}=2760\) GeV

    by Saeed Ahmad, Hannu Holopainen and Pasi Huovinen
    arXiv:1608.03444, submitted to Phys. Rev. C.
  2. Effects of \(\rho\)-meson width on pion distributions in heavy-ion collisions
    by Pasi Huovinen, Pok Man Lo, Michał Marczenko, Kenji Morita, Krzysztof Redlich
    and Chihiro Sasaki
    arXiv:1608.06817, accepted for publication in Phys. Lett. B.

and presentations:

Some useful stuff for hydrodynamical modeling:

Research interests:

  • Ultrarelativistic Heavy Ion collisions (CERN SPS & LHC, RHIC at BNL):
    1. Space-time evolution, flow and anisotropies
    2. Hydrodynamical modeling of the expansion
      1. Dissipation and viscosity
      2. Comparison and combination of hydrodynamic and transport models
      3. Freeze-out
    3. Lattice and hadronic Equation of State
    4. Electromagnetic signals
    5. Signatures of QCD phase transitions
