is anyone doing research or thesis in comp physics?

i am thinking about joining a group that does comp physics applied to condensed matter problems such as electronic structure.

most of the code is written in fortran. i know python and c++

I work in computational electronic structure. Most (all?) of our mainline code is written in C++. I have always been more comfortable with MATLAB/Python (that's what I learned on), but you eventually pick-up what you need to know to function on the job. Or you at least work-out some kind of work around if you encounter some bit of particularly arcane legacy code. That's been my experience anyway. Not sure if I answered your question.
