Jeremy Holt

Faculty: Assistant Professor


Jeremy Holt is a nuclear theorist interested in the physics of hot and dense matter, core-collapse supernovae, neutron stars, compact object mergers and their observable emissions. He received his PhD in physics from Stony Brook University in 2008 under the supervision of Gerald E. Brown. Before joining the Physics and Astronomy department at Texas A&M in 2016, he performed postdoctoral research at the Technical University of Munich and the University of Washington. Professor Holt studies the nuclear microphysics of high-energy astrophysical phenomena through the low-energy realization of quantum chromodynamics, chiral effective field theory.
