I am a computational physicist specializing in scientific computing on high performance resources and next-generation hardware architectures, relativistic effects in materials science, and photovoltaic materials. In my current appointment, I am a postdoctoral associate in the group of Prof. Volker Blum (group website) at Duke University.
I am one of the main developers for the FHI-aims electronic structure package (website), for which I implemented GPU acceleration as well as general optimizations targeting massively-parallel calculations.
I am also a developer for the ELectronic Structure Infrastructure (ELSI, website), a community effort of developers from various codes, national laboratories, and HPC resources to create an open-source library providing a unified, code-independent API for the Kohn-Sham solvers necessary for large-scale KS-DFT.
My doctoral work was in the group of Prof. Michael Widom (group website) at Carnegie Mellon University, where I modeled phase stability for high-entropy alloys and boron carbide using free energy models derived from datasets of first-principles calculations.
