Modern accelerators such as the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the Large Hadron Collider provide unique testing grounds for Quantum Chromodynamics at high energies. A major part of my research deals with the study of the different phases and properties of high energy-density QCD matter produced in ion-ion collisions at RHIC. A major current focus is centered on mapping the QCD phase diagram, elucidating the transport and anomalous transport properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma, and tests for chiral symmetry restoration. In this overview talk, I am planning to present an introduction to the Quark-Gluon Plasma physics as well as point out some important insights using my recent experimental results.
