Monte Carlo Simulation

Density Functional Theory

Dynamical Mean-Field Theory


I graduated from the University of Waterloo in 2020 with a bachelor's degree in mathematical physics. My coursework was mainly in mathematics, physics, and computer science, and I have always enjoyed solving problems with code. When I wasn't studying, I contributed to various research projects by implementing simulation algorithms, usually taking advantage of the Compute Canada high-performance CPU clusters.

I am currently a graduate student at McMaster University using computationally intensive methods such as density functional theory and dynamical mean-field theory to study strongly correlated systems. My interests include condensed matter physics, statistical mechanics, and quantum chemistry.
