About Me

Research Interests

My PhD research focuses primarily on computational methods for ab initio spectroscopy. However my interests more broadly lie in computational physics and other applications of high-performance computing. In particular, I am excited by the future of composite computational methodologies like quantum machine learning, or applications of neural networks that can reduce the computational cost of physical simulations.
