Research

Quantum theory is incredibly successful at describing  our physical world and its limitations, at least at a small scale,  yet many fundamental questions about the theory remain open. These range from deep issues such as where will quantum mechanics break down (if at all)? to practical issues such as what does it take to build  a quantum processor that can outperform a classical computer?  I study these types of issues using various mathematical tools that generally fall within the context of quantum information theory.

 I am particularly interested in studying quantum mechanics under various constraints such as the inability to communicate faster than the speed of light or the limitations of a particular experimental setup.  Although my work is theoretical, I really enjoy collaborating with experimentalists and I am currently a member of two experimental quantum optics groups at the University of Toronto.

For a list of my publications see my Google scholar profile.
