My research focuses on high-resolution simulations on phase transition and
critical phenomena in magnets and antiferromagnets. My first research project is high-resolution Monte Carlo simulations for the 3D Ising model. My second project involves the finite-size behavior of the first order spin-flop transition in the 3D XXZ Heisenberg antiferromagnet by using the replica exchange Wang-Landau algorithm.
Manuscript “Pushing the limits of Monte Carlo simulations for the 3D Ising Model” in preparation.
