My background prior to joining the OU physics department was in experimental materials and chemistry. After joining the OU graduate program, I became interested in AMO theory where I work under the guidance of Prof. Doerte Blume. Our current work includes simulating tunneling dynamics of interacting atoms through a finite sized optical barrier. For this project, we use a ton of methods ranging from pen and paper to high-performance parallel computing regularly.
