Summary of Research

I am interested in developing computational methods for electronic structure, quantum chemistry, and the quantum many-body problem. I am especially excited about developing better quantum embedding algorithms and applying neural networks as ansatzes in variational Monte Carlo methods. I hope to develop methods that that can one day (hopefully in the not-too-far future) be leveraged to develop new materials and technologies that can help society more quickly and more cheaply bring climate change to a halt.
