Theory and Modelling

We model electron-photon interactions in X-ray imaging experiments. This also involves the development of algorithms and techniques in high-performance computation, relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum field theories.

Other projects include tests of quantum electrodynamics in the strong external fields limit; parity and time-reversal violation in electronic systems; implementation of relativistic electronic structure models, and their application to chemical and physical studies of atoms, molecules, clusters and solids containing heavy elements.

Location: University of Melbourne, Parkville campus
Supervisor: Dr Harry Quiney
