I am a senior computational scientist and research fellow, with programming experience across academic research (scientific computing) and industry environments. I have several years experience as a polyglot developer, with expertise in C/C++, Python, and Julia, and parallelisation using MPI, OpenMP, and CUDA. I also have expertise in modern development practices, including containerisation, CI/CD, agile practices and performance engineering. I lead the technical activities for many quantum projects at the Irish Centre for High-End Computing, and work on the the development of algorithms, methods and toolkits to best utilise near-term quantum devices.
Previously, I completed my PhD with the Quantum Systems Unit at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Japan, where I researched the control and manipulation of quantum states via theoretical and numerical methods, making use of GPU and HPC computing methods. Following this, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Computational Crystallography Initiative at Lawrence Berkeley Lab, investigating the use of prototype exascale computing technologies for X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) crystallographic analysis of bio-molecular systems.
