James C. Osborn

Computational Scientist / Team Lead

James specializes in quantum field theory and lattice simulation methods, with an emphasis on lattice QCD.  He also has interests in quantum computing, HPC, sparse linear algebra, applying ML methods to Hybrid Monte Carlo, and random matrix theory.


Dr. James Osborn is a Computational Scientist and Team Lead at Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Scientist in the University of Chicago Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering.  His current projects focus on developing lattice QCD code and algorithms for exascale, and in exploring ways to simulate lattice field theories with quantum computers.

Dr. Osborn received bachelor’s degrees in math and physics from the University of Virginia, a Ph.D. in nuclear theory from Stony Brook University and has held research positions at Boston University, the University of Utah, and Duke University.
