Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the design and implementation of parallel Matrix Product State (MPS) algorithms and their application to strongly-correlated quantum lattice models from condensed matter physics. This involves writing code suitable for use on high performance computing (HPC) clusters (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 skills.
