Casey's research is in applying high performance computing to many-body quantum systems. She's currently investigating the effectiveness of the complex Langevin method to overcome the sign problem in quantum materials.

Previously, she was a postdoctoral research associate at Boston University in the physics department and the Hariri Institute for Computing. She earned her PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow and a William Neal Reynolds fellow in the Royster Society of Fellows.

She also works on issues of diversity and equity in STEM, with an emphasis on improving representation and support of women, LGBTQ folks, BIPOC, and other underrepresented groups in STEM. When she's not doing science, you can find her working on her novels or outside running, hiking, or kayaking.
