A main motivation for my research is the idea that all physics is information-theoretic in origin -- "it from bit", as John A. Wheeler put it.

Concretely, I am a mathematical physicist working in quantum information and foundations:

* Statistical physics and concentration of measure,

* generalized probabilistic theories,

* algorithmic complexity theory.
