Steffen A. Bass joined the faculty of Duke University in 2000 as Assistant Professor with subsequent promotions to Associate Professor in 2008 and Professor in 2012. From 2000 to 2005 he also held a position as RIKEN-BNL Research Center Fellow. He received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics in 1997 from the J.W. Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, and subsequently held postdoctoral appointments at Duke and Michigan State University (as Visiting Assistant Professor).
Professor Bass' main research interests are the physics of relativistic heavy-ion collisions, the phenomenology and transport properties of the Quark-Gluon-Plasma and knowledge extraction from large scale data sets via computational modeling. He is best known for his work developing a variety of transport models for the description of ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, such as UrQMD and hybrid RFD+Boltzmann models, as well as his contributions to the parton recombination model, the phenomenology of the QGP and the shear viscosity of QCD matter.
Bass was awarded a DOE Outstanding Junior Investigator Award in 2003 and is a member of the Division of Nuclear Physics and the Division of Computational Physics of the American Physical Society. He served on the DNP Program Committee in 2010 and 2011 and was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2014. He has published more than 130 peer-reviewed articles with over 7,500 citations and an h-factor of 42. He is a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics and recently served as chair of the 2012 Hot & Dense QCD White Paper Writing Committee.
