Research overview

My research interests lie in the intersection of operator algebras and mathematical physics. More specifically, I work in algebraic quantum field theory, conformal field theory, quantum information theory and the study of completely positive semigroups.

PhD supervision

I offer PhD supervision in areas around the mathematics of conformal field theory, operator algebras, and quantum information theory.
