My research is concerned with the foundations of quantum mechanics. At a fundamental level, key phenomena that separate quantum from classical physics are contextuality, non-locality and entanglement. These are at the root of many of the conceptual issues in quantum mechanics, and also behind many of the striking applications it can lead to, e.g. for information processing. Currently, my research is focused on developing mathematical formalisms for treating these phenomena, with the aim of achieving a deeper, more structural understanding, which is underpinned by robust and elegant mathematical theory.
