Welcome to Tom Hemmick's Home Page

I am a professor of experimental nuclear physics in the SUNY Stony Brook Physics Department. My research involves the study of collisions of heavy ions at high energies. I am a member of the PHENIX experiment at the Brookhaven National Laboratory RHIC accelerator.

Within PHENIX I work on both the Ring-Imaging Cherenkov Detector or 'RICH' and on the PHENIX Drift Chambers which are part of the PHENIX Tracking system.
