I am interested in the applications of Category theory to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Quantum Computing (QC). In the context of NLP, I have been working on the relationship between Pregroup Grammar and Database Theory with the aim of building structured question-answering algorithms. These models can be implemented using classical and quantum Machine Learning techniques borrowed from the database community. My research in QC is focused at developing graphical formalisms to translate between different models of quantum computation such as Topological, Fermionic, Measurement-Based and Gate-Based Quantum Computing. I enjoy reasoning with diagrams and discussing the role of contextuality in databases, quantum physics and natural language.
