Postgraduate Researcher (Theoretical Physics)


My work as a doctoral researcher involves looking at the theory of Optimal Quantum Control in the context of its applications to spin systems. By developing theoretical tools to refine approaches for simulating open quantum systems, the goal is to inform experiments on controlled spin dynamics of radical pair systems under weak magnetic fields. Having studied Mathematics and Physics as an undergraduate student at Aberystwyth University, I am also fascinated by the connections that fundamental Physics has to diverse areas like Theoretical Computer Science, Abstract Algebra, Mathematical Linguistics, Logic, Quantum Biology and Machine Learning. My work lies at the intersection of fundamental research and research software development, and developing open-source software for spin Hamiltonian dynamics is a primary goal in my research project.
