Our research group uses the atomic nucleus as a laboratory for the investigation of a wide variety of fundamental physics topics, ranging from the microscopic description of collective excitation modes in finite quantum systems and the evolution of quantum shell structure in nuclei far from stability to precision tests of the electroweak Standard Model of particle physics and searches for the new physics beyond it. These studies are performed with state-of-the-art gamma-ray detector arrays such as the TRIUMF-ISAC Gamma-Ray Escape Suppressed Spectrometer (TIGRESS) and Gamma-Ray Infrastructure For Fundamental Investigations of Nuclei (GRIFFIN) located at the Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC) facility at TRIUMF in Vancouver, Canada.
