Dr Maria-Andreea Filip
I completed my MSci in Chemistry at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge and stayed on for a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry. My research interests focus on developing stochastic algorithms to solve the electronic structure problem in its most challenging regimes. In particular, I am interested in how such algorithms could take advantage of emerging quantum computational resources to tackle increasingly large chemical systems.
During my PhD, I developed two novel Coupled Cluster Monte Carlo techniques. The first focused on being able to describe molecules away from equilibrium, while the second was based on a unitary formulation compatible with quantum computational models, providing a potential avenue for bringing quantum resource requirements for quantum chemistry into the near-term.
