Description of Research: 

Advancements in the field of computational chemistry has been accelerated with the use of supercomputers to run increasingly intensive simulations. The complexity of simulating large quantum chemical systems calls for  ncreasingly cost-effective methods. My research focuses on developing parallel numerical algorithms that addresses the need for communication-avoiding and computationally efficient algorithms for simulating quantumchemical systems on supercomputers. More specifically, I am interested in algorithms for large tensor-structured nonlinear eigenvalue problems.
