Dr Ian McCulloch leads the Tensor Network Algorithms group that works in computational tensor network algorithms for one- and two-dimensional quantum systems, and applications to condensed matter, ultra-cold atomic gases and engineered quantum systems. 

Dr McCulloch's research interests are numerical techniques for simulating quantum many-body systems,and he is the author of a large suite of software tools that are used by several research groups around the world.
