As a Theoretical Physicists my research in many cases proceeded in collaboration with experimental colleagues. Such collaborations resulted in about 20 experimental proposals for which I provided theoretical support and two Science papers published by JLab experimentalists on the dominance of pn short-range correlations and momentum sharing in asymmetric nuclei. The 12 GeV CEBAF is an unparalleled machine allowing experiments which in many cases will break new ground in our understanding the structure of nuclei and hadrons. If elected, I will use UGBoD’s framework to contribute to the 12 GeV program by enhancing the flow of ideas between theoretical and experimental groups through workshops and collaborative meetings. I would also explore the possibility of supporting the mutual visits of theorists and experimentalists involved in early stages of experimental proposals.
