Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) describes the strong interaction between quarks and gluons, which are the elementary particles in the Standard Model of physics making up composite hadrons such as proton and neutron. One of the basic properties of QCD is called color confinement, which says quarks and gluons will be confined into hadrons at low temperature or low baryon chemical potential. However, at high temperature or high baryon chemical potential, which can be generated by the relativistic heavy ion collision experiments performed at the facilities at Large Hadron Collider (LHC) or Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), quarks and gluons will become liberated and form a new kind of matter called Quark-gluon Plasma (QGP).

My primary interests lie in using QGP as the laboratory to study the basic properties of QCD, such as the phase diagram of QCD, the existence of Parity (P) or Charge-Parity (CP) violation of QCD and the anomalous transport phenomena. This task is certainly difficult due to the complicated evolution and the strong interaction of QGP, and we thus need the development of both the theoretical methodology and the advanced numerical method.
