meI am Dr James C. Womack, a Research Software Engineer (RSE) at the University of Bristol, UK. As a RSE support specialist, I help researchers across the university to develop and maintain high-quality research software. I provide general RSE support to researchers in a wide range of disciplines via consultation, training, and collaboration, and run the free-at-the-point-of-use ask-rse consulting service.

My academic background is in computational chemistry. As a PhD student and postdoctoral researcher, I worked on the development of software and methods for simulating molecules and materials at the quantum level. See the Work section of this website for a list of publications and talks.
