Computational science is very much a third pillar of science alongside pure theory and experimental science. The challenges in physics, chemistry, biology, and materials research that scientists are tackling in order to help address some of the most interesting technological (and societal) problems of today are often of such complexity that it is impossible to make progress without a computational approach. I will focus on my principal area of expertise in theory and simulation of materials at the nanoscale using quantum mechanical simulations. I will largely avoid the underlying philosophical difficulties with quantum theory and rather highlight the development and practical application of quantum mechanics for understanding the behaviour of materials.
