I am interested in exploring post-quantum theories - those which exhibit phenomena beyond what is possible in standard quantum mechanics. At the moment I am studying the theory of density hypercubes (and similar theories that come from iterating the CPM construction) and trying to understand how higher-order interference can be used to computational advantage. Interference is the backbone of many quantum algorithms and thus a deeper understanding of its nature may allow us to develop more algorithms while extending our understanding of the physical world.
