Curriculum Vitae (July 2019)





I try to be a quantum chemist in disguise in the Department of Mathematics, but it appears that I am definitely an applied mathematician (period) in the eyes of quantum chemists.

My research focuses on the development of efficient and accurate numerical methods for electronic structure calculations, with broad applications in quantum chemistry, quantum physics and materials science. I am now an associate professor of the Department of Mathematics at UC Berkeley, a faculty scientist at Berkeley Lab’s Mathematics Group within the Computational Research Division, and a mathematician within Berkeley Lab's Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA). I am very fortunate to have received the Sloan Research Fellowship (2015), the National Science Foundation CAREER award (2017), the Department of Energy Early Career award (2017), the (inaugural) SIAM Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) early career award (2017), and the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) (2019).
