I have many years experience in programming numerical simulations. My forte being in building analogues of real-world physical systems particularly, though not exclusively employing monte-carlo methods. I have particular experience in simulations of condensed matter physics. Until recently I was researching the diffusion of hydrogen in palladium via monte-carlo simulations of this classic lattice gas. I am now focussing on simulating diffraction patterns directly from atomistic models - specifically using CUDA enabled graphics cards to speed up calculation.

Thus if you are interested in some piece of numerical modelling you could consider dropping me an email. You may be interested in modelling / optimising an n-variable system which cannot be tackled analytically. Possibly an industrial or financial process with many input variables for which a minimum cost / time / energy configuration is required. Try me, I like a challenge.
