// StudioCD: About

Hello there!

My name is Christian Drischler. I’m a theoretical nuclear physicist and FRIB Theory Fellow at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) and Michigan State University (MSU). My current research interests include:

  • Neutron stars
  • Equation of state of neutron-rich matter
  • Chiral effective field theory
  • Many-body perturbation theory
  • Bayesian methods for uncertainty quantification
  • Emulators using eigenvector continuation
  • Computational physics

The complete list of my publications can be found at inspirehep.net.

I’m a collaborator of the NSF Physics Frontier Center Network for Neutrinos, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Symmetries (N3AS) and the Bayesian Uncertainty Quantification: Errors in Your EFT (BUQEYE) collaboration.

Since October 2020 I am an FRIB Theory Fellow at MSU. In 2017, I joined the group of National Academy of Science member Wick Haxton at University of California, Berkeley, in 2017 after I had graduated from Technical University Darmstadt, Germany, with a doctoral degree in physics. For the “high scientific achievements in [my] dissertation” I received the 2018 Research Award of the Gerhard Herzberg Foundation at TU Darmstadt. In 2021 I received the inaugural FRIB Early Achievement Award (theory), awarded “for significant contributions to our understanding of dense matter and neutron-star properties using modern theoretical and statistical approaches.”

This website is (mostly) dedicated to the projects I worked on when I was a high-school student (2007-2009). To large extent the texts are in German. Some projects include graphic design and photography, some others astronomy and acoustics.
