I am interested in investigating numerical methods for quantum systems described by a range of equations such as the linear, nonlinear and stochastic versions of the Schrödinger equation in the semiclassical as well as the atomic regime. I am also interested in related equations of Quantum Mechanics such as the Pauli, Dirac and Klein–Gordon equations.
My interest is equally spread between the design and convergence analysis of numerical methods applicable to such equations. I am currently working with Lie algebraic techniques such as the Magnus expansion and Zassenhaus splittings, whose combination is very effective for the simulation of equations with time-varying fields and holds great promise for control of quantum systems.
I am also interested in applications of these numerical methods in Theoretical Chemistry, Material Sciences and Physics including study of laser-matter interactions, ionization, femtochemisty etc., and am also very open to collaboration in these fields.
