I am a computational physicist, generally interested in the simulation of quantum condensed matter physics as well as methods and tools for numerical software development in general.
My current research focuses on the ab initio simulation of complex quantum systems at the nanoscale using quantum Monte Carlo methods. I am working at the University of Cambridge in the QMC Research group on the interlayer coupling of graphite.
Besides physics, I've been interested in Open Source software since 1995, when I first installed Linux on my computer. Over the years, I have gathered all kinds of experience in programming, system and network adminstration.
Together with my wife and our son, we are currently enjoying the English way of life in our beautiful little house in Trumpington and looking forward to a second year in this fascinating country.
