In the Computational Physics Group, you will work on the latest methods in computational science for pressing societal problems. Our work spans a broad range of

We are always hiring determined new group members.
If you are interested in joining the group, what to do next depends on who you are:
Excellent. In this case, you have two options:
Apply for the CSE Ph.D. program. If you do this, place my name in your faculty preference list (you get to pick two faculty). If this is you, I recommend not emailing me, since I will see you application regardless. Feel free to email me if you have a special circumstance that was not in your application, but you would like me know about or consider. However, I encourage you to include all relevant details in the application itself for transparency purposes.
Apply for a Ph.D. in a program where CSE has a home unit, like Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering. If you do this and are interested in working with me, send me an email indicating the program you applied to, CV, and transcripts.
If you are on the fence, I recommend applying for the CSE program, which is remarkably flexible regarding advising and course work.
Fill out this form then send Spencer an email. Include your current degree program, your year in that program, why you are interested in our group, your CV, current transcripts, and previous advisor(s).
I am not currently accepting Master’s (M.S.) students or applications, from GT or elsewhere.
If you are interested in a Georgia Tech Ph.D., follow the instructions under “I am already a Ph.D. student at Georgia Tech.” Otherwise, see “I am interested in an M.S. from Georgia Tech.”
The group has had numerous undergraduate researchers since we started at Georgia Tech. Many have published great work and I am very proud of what they have accomplished. Continuing in this spirit, I am always open to working with keen undergraduate students.
