Research

I study theoretical and computational quantum mechanics, more specifically theoretical and computational methods to calculate how systems of several interacting particles evolve. To be even more specific, I hope to derive dynamical coupled cluster theory (CC theory) using a spatially discrete lattice basis (DVR basis), implement a flexible code and use it to simulate systems of interest both within quantum chemistry and nuclear physics.

My project will be finished in December 2024, and my main supervisor is professor Morten Hjorth-Jensen.

 

Cooperation

Through my co-supervisors professor Thomas Bondo Pedersen, Gaute Hagen and Gustav Jansen I will cooperate with the CoE Hylleraas Centre here in Oslo concerning quantum chemical computations and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee concerning nuclear computations.

 

Teaching

Autumn 2021: Group teacher in FYS1120 – Electromagnetism

 

Background

I hold bachelor's and master's degrees in physics from NTNU, where I calculated spin transport between conductors and antiferromagnets – that is, how an electronic current in a conductor may give rise to spin waves (so-called magnons) in an adjacent antiferromagnet, and vice versa. Such mechanisms will be important in possible future spintronics, where one in addition to electricity seeks to utilise spin to store and transfer information. Spintronics concerns spin and magnetism to a larger degree, but it too builds upon quantum mechanics for many-body systems, just as the methods I am currently working on.

I also took the 1-year teacher training (PPU) course at NTNU and worked for half a year in secondary school, teaching mathematics and science among other subjects.
