Research Interests

My research concerns developing and applying computational methods for studying one- and two-dimensional strongly correlated systems. There is currently an exciting interplay between condensed matter physics, quantum information theory, and numerical algorithm development which is making it possible to study more realistic many-body systems, including their dynamical and finite-temperature behavior.

I am also the lead developer of the ITensor C++ Library, which facilitates powerful matrix-product-state DMRG calculations for 1d and 2d systems, as well as post-DMRG tensor-network methods. For more information see
