Baishan is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Computational Nuclear Physics group. His research is focused on ab initio calculations of atomic nuclei and related topics such as dark matter, fundamental symmetries, and nuclear astrophysics. Such calculations are very challenging because of the complexities of the inter-nucleon interaction and quantum-mechanical many-body effects. The main effort of Baishan’s research is to understand atomic nuclei through precise and uncertainty-controlled quantum many-body methods and to link ongoing developments of two- and three-body nuclear forces rooted in the QCD with nuclear structure, by improving many-body methods, performing high-performance computing, and exploring new nuclear phenomena. High-performance computing is an important aspect of his work.
Baishan completed his Ph.D. in Theoretical Nuclear Physics from Peking University in 2017. Then, he has been a postdoc at Peking University for the following two years. Afterward, Baishan joined TRIUMF in Canada as a postdoctoral fellow from the year 2019 to 2022.
Outside of work, Baishan enjoys fitness, hiking, fishing, and spending time with family and friends.
