We explore the S- and P-states for bottomonia at high temperaures, above the critical temperature $T_c$, using non-relativistic QCD (NRQCD). We extract the spectrum as a function of temperature by looking at point to point correlators and smoothed correlators. We push to the limit of NRQCD for $N_ \tau = 12$ which allows us to find the bottomonium spectrum up to a temperature of 334MeV.

Heavy flavor quarks offer unique insights to the properties of the strongly coupled Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in heavy-ion collisions. Recently, precision heavy flavor measurements are made available thanks to the advanced detector technology and high luminosity collisions provided by RHIC and the LHC colliders. In this talk, I will review these recent experimental achievements and...

One of the best ways to understand hadronization in QCD is to study the production of quarkonium. However, the production mechanism of quarkonium is still uncertain. Spin-related measurements like the polarization are strong tests of production models. In this talk I will summarize recent results of quarkonium production and polarization in elementary collisions, including the results from...

The study of bound heavy quark states has proven to be a crucial tool for investigating the matter formed in collisions of large nuclei. At both RHIC and the LHC, there has been considerable work in understanding the creation of these states in pp collisions, the effects of the nucleus in p+A collisions, and the spectral modifications that arise in A+A collisions. However, despite decades of...
