## Biosketch

*I try to be a quantum chemist in disguise in the Department of Mathematics, but it appears that I am definitely an applied mathematician (period) in the eyes of quantum chemists.*

My research focuses on the development of efficient, accurate and scalable numerical methods for electronic structure calculations, with broad applications in quantum chemistry, quantum physics and materials science. I am now an associate professor of the Department of Mathematics at UC Berkeley, a faculty scientist at Berkeley Labâ€™s Mathematics Group within the Computational Research Division, and a mathematician within Berkeley Lab's Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA), and a member of the Challenge Institute of Quantum Computation (CIQC) at Berkeley. I am very fortunate to have received the Sloan Research Fellowship (2015), the National Science Foundation CAREER award (2017), the Department of Energy Early Career award (2017), the (inaugural) SIAM Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) early career award (2017), the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) (2019), the ACM Gordon Bell prize (Team) (2020), and the Simons Investigator in Mathematics award (2021).
