Simon Hands is a theoretical and computational physicist specialising in lattice field theory simulations of strongly-interacting matter. Two areas of particular interest are the behaviour of quarks under extreme conditions of temperature and density, and the behaviour of electrons in two-dimensional substances such as graphene. My research frequently requires the use of Tier-1 high performance computing such as STFC’s national DiRAC HPC facilty where I am currently co-chair of the Project Board.
I have worked at Swansea University since 1993.
