My research interests fall into the area of cold atom and few-body physics. Specifically, I am interested in developing a bottom-up understanding of quantum mechanical systems in terms of a few key parameters. Cold atom systems provide excellent model systems in this quest. A key goal is to identify “building blocks” that provide an intuitive means to understand larger systems and/or serve as starting points for developing many-body theories. My research utilizes analytical and numerical techniques, and the development of new or improved algorithms is one the group’s strengths.
