Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on parallel Matrix Product State (MPS) algorithms and their application to strongly-correlated quantum lattice systems, which arise in condensed matter physics. This involves writing code suitable for use on high performance computing (HPC) systems (i.e. supercomputers).

Other interests include quantum foundations, quantum information, chaos theory, and physics education.

Teaching interests

Quantum mechanics, mathematical methods, computational physics, scientific computing, programming.
