About Me

A photo of AdamI’m a computational condensed matter physicist. My primary interest is in exotic phase transitions and quantum many-body states, but I am also interested in unusual applications of classical statistical physics, such as the motion of public transportation vehicles. I have extensive experience using quantum Monte Carlo, but I have recently branched out into tensor network methods. Currently I’m working on a study of field-induced excitations near a deconfined quantum critical point and I’m helping to develop uni10, a tensor network library. I did my PhD with Anders Sandvik at Boston University and I am now a postdoc in Ying-Jer Kao‘s group at National Taiwan University. I co-organize joint group meeting with Prof. Pochung Chen’s group at National Tsing Hua University in Hsinchu, Taiwan. I am also a member of the Executive Board of the APS Forum for Early Career Scientists (FECS).
