Dr Jasmine Brewer

BSc Colorado, PhD MIT


I currently hold a Leverhulme-Peierls fellowship in the Centre for Theoretical Physics in Oxford. My research is in high-energy particle physics, particularly focused on the properties of a new phase of matter, the quark-gluon plasma, that is produced in collisions of heavy nuclei. Before coming to Oxford, I was a Senior Research Fellow in the theoretical physics department at CERN. I received my PhD from the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT in 2020.

I study the properties of the quark-gluon plasma, a new phase of matter produced in heavy-ion collisions, where the quarks and gluons that are normally confined in protons and neutrons become free in a liquid state. A focus of my research is to develop novel ways to infer the properties of the quark-gluon plasma from complex, indirect measurements that are made at high-energy particle colliders. On the theoretical side, I am also interested in how the quark-gluon plasma liquid is formed from the underlying interactions of quarks and gluons.
