QCD@work / Recent LHCb results from heavy ion collisions

The LHCb collaboration pursues a full physics program studying dense QCD that utilizes both fixed-target and beam-beam collisions. The forward design of the LHCb spectrometer allows the low-x region of the nucleus to be probed in detail, while precision vertexing and full particle ID allow a wide range of hadrons to be reconstructed down to very low pt. This talk will discuss recent LHCb results including modification of heavy quark hadronization in dense systems, charm production in fixed- target collisions, and new, precise constraints on the nuclear parton distribution functions. We will also give a brief outlook on recent LHCb upgrades, and their impact on the heavy ion program.
