My research interest might be described best as Computational Physics. At the heart of Computational Physics lies numerical simulation. Most real-world physics problems cannot be solved analytically due to the inherent complexities of the system; fortunately, much can be learned through computer modeling and analysis. My research deals with constructing these models and simulating physical interactions in several areas.
