My research interests are in counting complexity and quantum computation. Currently, I am analysing counting problems in the Holant framework using methods and knowledge from quantum information theory. I am also interested in graphical languages for quantum computation, in particular the properties and applications of the ZX-calculus.

My publications can be found on the arXiv.
