**“Non-Perturbative approaches to strongly interacting systems”**

I will provide an overview of the outstanding problems, from my perspective, of the physics of strongly interacting systems, with an emphasis on non-Abelian gauge theories and QCD. Then I will discuss the ways in which I aim to tackle these problems, and finally talk about the resources I might need to do so. The main focus of the research discussion will be certain non-perturbative aspects of QFT, both computational and analytical (if time permits), and on work in progress on relativistic hydrodynamics.
