Biography:


Muhammad Usman Ashraf is doing his PhD from Tsinghua University, Beijing, P.R.China. His research is mainly the data analysis and phenomenology of nuclear collision physics and particle physics. Especially He is very interested in Heavy-ion collision physics, he is analyzing STAR experimental data at Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) to understand the QCD phase structure and probe the properties of matter under extreme conditions. He is also interested in microscopic transport model and relativistic hydrodynamics descriptions of heavy ion collisions, the production and transport of heavy flavor in hot and dense matter and physics of anisotropic collective flow. He is currently involved in the data analysis of the STAR fixed-target program, in which he is doing the "strangeness production in STAR fixed-target program." He is an active member of STAR Collaboration, under the Light Flavor Spectra and Ultra-Peripheral collisions physics working group. Beside this he is STAR experiment Embedding helper to produce the embedding data for detector efficiency correction. He has 21 Publications including one in NATURE. He did his MS from International Islamic University Islamabad, with specialisation in High Energy Physics, his master thesis topic was "Study of k-meson production in p-p collisions at ultra-relativistic energies with ALICE experiment at CERN." He did his MSc from CHEP, PU Lahore.
