My research has focused primarily on the utilization of classical and quantum Monte Carlo methods to solve physical problems. I initially worked on lattice gauge theories studying phase transitions in induced lattice gauge models(quantum chromodynamics). During my PhD I worked on quantum Monte Carlo(condensed matter physics), optimising wave-functions for many-body quantum clusters. I am presently involved in developing computational tools for open quantum systems, in particular, applying the stochastic wave-function approach to various quantum systems.
I am also the coordinator of the Engineering Physics Programme on the Howard College Campus.
