Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics

If you are interested in working with me as a PhD student, you should send me an email at [email protected], Perimeter Institute is committed to diversity within its community and I welcome applications from underrepresented groups.

I study how quantum resources can be used to generate non-classical correlations, ultimately seeking a quantitative characterization and a qualitative explanation of quantum correlations. In particular I am interested in: <ul> <li>Causal structure in the language of Bayesian Directed Acyclic Graphs</li><li>Quantifying the quantum-over-classical advantage in network-based information-theoretic tasks</li><li>Contrasting quantum Hilbert space dimension with classical cardinality of latent variables</li><li>Quantum Contextuality, in particular, algorithms for quantifying Universal Noncontextuality</li><li>A resource theory of quantum nonclassicality, including Nonlocality and Contextuality</li></ul>
