Prof. Abhay Deshpande works in experimental high energy nuclear physics. His current research focuses on understanding the contributions of quarks, antiquarks and gluons to the proton’s spin using the PHENIX detector and high energy polarized proton beams at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)
