Xiaochun He is an experimental high-energy nuclear physicist.  He is a member of the PHENIX Collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory.  His main research areas include the study of the properties of Quark-Gluon Plasma created in heavy ion collisions, the cosmic ray flux variations and the associated applications (cosmic ray muon tomography, cosmic ray effects on climate change, etc.).  He is also interested in developing radiation-hard sensors and detectors for nuclear and particle physics experiments.  He has published over 150 scientific papers and 40 conference presentations and invited talks.

Xiaochun He has been collaborating with over 500 scientists and engineers from 75 institutions in 15 countries. Most of my collaborators are from the PHENIX Collaboration.
