Dr Joshua Bodyfelt

Research Officer

New Zealand Institute for Advanced Study

Introduce my "six core research values". Use "It's All Around You" as a motivation. DIscuss focus on numerical approach - Fortran, C++, CUDA, Bash, etc. BCM, SLURM, hardware.

To sum up my research in one thought: I study the numerical propagation of waves. Whether their nature be quantum or classical depends upon the problem's scale. Various carrier media effects -  e.g. loss, gain, nonlinearity, or periodicity - can be considered, accounted for in the numerical modeling of wave transport, and shown to give fundamentally interesting and/or commercially developable results.
