Mark Boyer is a third year graduate student from Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 2016 he graduated from Amherst College, where he studied chemistry and math. While there he did research with Mark Marshall studying the argon-vinyl chloride complex via discrete variable representation. After spending a year at Wolfram Research, he came to the University of Washington in the fall of 2017.
Outside of the lab he enjoys music, cooking, learning languages, helping people on the Mathematica StackExchange, and creating programming tools and frameworks
His current research involves studying the H5+ molecule via discrete variable representation, creating a framework for performing second order vibrational perturbation theory in user-defined coordinates, and, in collaboration with Ryan, optimizing distributed code on an HPC system for running DMC.
