Research overview

The majority of my research takes place within the field of quantum probability, a branch of mathematics which involves functional analysis, probability theory and quantum mechanics. At present I am investigating Feynman-Kac perturbations of quantum dynamical semigroups, the general theory of quantum random walks and the theory of non-commutative stopping times.

I also have a strong interest in the classical theory of stochastic processes and its applications to financial mathematics.
