Direct nuclear reaction theory and the development of few-body quantum scattering methods to study nuclear structure, particularly as applied to the study of exotic nuclei. Pioneered the application of few-body Glauber methods in nuclear reactions, in particular stripping and knockout reactions at fragmentation energies. Current interests span a wide range of nuclear phenomena from low energy astrophysics and decay studies to hadron physics and meson production. Currently developing interest in open quantum systems and quantum phenomena in molecular biology.
