MChem in Chemistry, University of Sussex (2013)

I studied Chemistry at the University of Sussex and graduated with an MChem in 2013, focussing in Theoretical Physical Chemistry. I was introduced to computational modelling during my final year project, which used programs written in Maple and C++ to solve the Schroedinger Equation for three particle systems, containing a nucleus in motion. It was fascinating to return to the foundations of Quantum Mechanics and explore methods of dealing with electron correlation that disregarded approximations that have been relied upon for the last 90 years.

I am currently studying a taught first year of a 4-year PhD in Complex Systems Simulation. During this year I have completed course in the C and Python programming languages as well as developed experience working with Fortran code. I am currently working on a 3 month research project, based on aspects of my Ph.D. proposal. The focus of my investigation will be modelling emergent properties of the air-water surface interface using a combination of classical and quantum techniques.
