My current research is focused on studies of nuclei with approximately equal numbers of protons and neutrons. Recent work has involved the investigation of nuclear shapes and deformations of N=Z nuclei, isospin symmetry, neutron-proton pairing and nuclear isomeric states and their decays just below 100Sn. Some of the latest publications in these areas include studies of isospin symmetry in T=1 states in the mass 70 nuclei, a study of the role of nucleon core-excitations on the structure and decay modes of the 16+ spin-gap isomer in 96Cd, investigation of shape co-existence and shape transition through the impact of the tensor force in the self-conjugate nucleus 72Kr and the discovery and structural interpretation of a proton decaying isomeric state in 72Rb - a nucleus that resides beyond the proton drip-line.
Spectroscopy of proton rich nuclei using fragmentation, nucleon knock-out, low energy Coulomb excitation and fusion evaporation reaction techniques.
Experiments are performed at RIKEN, NSCL, ISOLDE, GANIL and Jyvaskyla.
