Experimental nuclear and particle physicist. These days I'm teaching, but I've spent a lot of time on nucleon structure in fixed target electron scattering and neutrino oscillations using reactors and beam sources.

revised Why does the Walecka model not include pions?
Walecka model is an effective field theory for nuclear interactions, so EFT tag is appropriate. Actually even more appropriate than QCD; extended to remove QCD in favor of the more general QFT ad also add nuclear physics; CApitalize the man's name while we're editting.
