My main field of research lies between quantum computation, quantum cryptography and quantum foundations. I am mostly interested in problems from theoretical physics and computer science, but my methods come from an area of pure mathematics known as category theory.

Here follow some of my active lines of research:                      

  1. algebraic structures involved in the symmetries and evolution of quantum systems
  2. algebraic structures behind the quantum Fourier transform and other forms of quantum advantage
  3. non-locality, causal structure, and their application to the security of quantum cryptographic protocols
  4. decoherence, thermodynamics and the quantum-classical interface
  5. physical methods in computational complexity theory and information theory
  6. categorical methods in computational linguistics and natural language processing

In the past, I have also done research in logic, computational geometry and graph theory.

I routinely teach classes for the Department and some Colleges, in the following topics: Computer Security; Computer Graphics; Computational Linguistics; Lambda Calculus and Types; Algorithms and Data Structures; Design and Analysis of Algorithms; Communication Theory.
