Robert J. Webber


I am Ph.D. student advised by Jonathan Weare at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. You can reach me at rw2515 [AT] nyu [DOT] edu.

I research Monte Carlo methods with applications in physics and chemistry. I work to identify sources of error, prove error bounds, and improve Monte Carlo accuracy. For my research accomplishments, I was awarded the 2020-2021 Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship, the 2020 Henning Biermann Prize, and the 2020 Moses A. Greenfield Research Prize.

Identifying the ground-state energy for quantum systems

You can hear me talk (virtually or in person) at UC Berkeley, SIAM CSE2021, or ENOC2020+1.

Lastly, here is a talk I gave about sampling rare events:
