Research Interests:
I am currently a PhD student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville studying Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics and will be defending Summer 2017. My research interests are in strongly correlated materials and computational physics. My current research involves using Classical Monte Carlo simulations to study the magnetic and structural properties of iron-based superconductors. My computational interests include parallel programming with multiple-CPU's using MPI and OpenMP and with GPU's using CUDA and OpenACC. This includes using these methods along with parallel Linear algebra libraries such as SCALAPACK, PLASMA, and MAGMA. 

More recently I have begun studying Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques using Python and TensorFlow. My work involving these topics can be found on my github page.
