Interests

My research concerns the mathematical foundations of quantum theory. I investigate the  extent to which structural features of quantum theory, such as nonlocality and contextuality, are shared by foil theories. In particular I am interested in understanding the properties of no-go theorems using sheaf theory, since this yields a new perspective on the different forms of non-classical behaviour that a physical system can exhibit.

During my DPhil I studied the compatibility between relativity and quantum theory from an information-theoretic perspective. I used the framework of categorical quantum mechanics: this supplies a simplifying formalism, and an intuitive graphical calculus for reasoning about quantum systems.
