Prof. Abhay Deshpande works in experimental nuclear and high energy physics. His current
research includes various exploratory and precision studies in QCD using polarized
proton-proton, proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus beams of the Relativistic Heavy
Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island; and high intensity
polarized electron beams of the recently upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator
Facility (CEBAF) at Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory, in Newport News, Virginia.
He has been involved deeply in the development of the science and promotion of the
future Electron Ion Collider.
