I study the phenomenological aspects of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) present in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions, as performed in RHIC and the LHC. My work involves using the AdS/CFT Correspondence to model the effects of strongly coupled non-abelian gauge theories on external probes in analogy to high energy partons (such as quarks) blasting through a hot (QGP-like) medium.
