I am a first year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. I am a Computational Chemist working with Quantum Chemistry and Software Engineering. Some of my goals as a researcher are: exploring chemical space, developing new open source tools for scientists and make this world better and more inclusive for everyone!
The computational evaluation of the electronic properties of atoms and moleculesentails the use of quantum mechanics. The computational cost of some routines, in most cases, does not scale linearly and becomes very dependent on the size of the system. Thus, over time, the development of effective tools to accelerate such computations can benefit of new programming languages, like Julia, focused on numerical, scientific and faster programming.
