The questions which motivate my research are: How can computation help us understand nature, and how can understanding nature improve computation? My research is interdisciplinary, and I enjoy collaborations with chemists, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians. I am particularly interested in defining simple discrete models which lead to efficient simulation methods for studying physics, and in the prospect of using future quantum mechanical computers for the efficient solution of problems in physics and chemistry.
