I am a postdoctoral researcher in TREX-Coe at University of Twente in Prof Claudia Fillipi's research group. I'm a theoretical and computational physicist with interest in the development and application of Quantum Monte Carlo and Quantum Chemistry methods applied to condensed matter and chemical systems. Moreover, the development of algorithms to bridge the gap between hardware and software as a way to aid the scientific advance and discovery.
