My research activities focus on understanding the structure of the nucleon. In my view, the experimental study of generalised distribution functions and form factors in both time-like and space-like regions provide the most promising way to further our current understanding decisively. Another key ingredient is to resolve the open question on the existence of exotic hadrons. The interactive sketch below tries to illustrate the links between those (ovals) and past and future experiments (boxes).
Open Questions in Hadron Physics
To my mind, the follwing three questions are the current key questions in hadron physics.
Can we understand the 2+1D structure of a hadron?
Access and space-like equivalents!
Why do form factors still reveal surprises?
Can explain ?
Which quark configurations exist?
If exist, why not or ?
The following experiments provide, to my mind, unique access to those questions and many more.
