I study quantum condensed matter systems theoretically and numerically, focusing on topological and geometrical properties. I develop numerical methods that bridge the gap between microscopic first principles models and collective properties of real materials. I seek to understand the effects of disorder in topological crystalline materials by exploring new mathematical constructs to capture topology and symmetry without perfect order, and modelling experimentally relevant materials and physical responses. Symmetry is a key ingredient in condensed matter physics, so we developed the qsymm software package, a symmetry finder and symmetric Hamiltonian generator.
