My Research Interests

The main focus of my interest are the foundations of quantum mechanics. Currently I am working on a resource theory approach to non-classicality trying to quantify the superposition of non orthogonal states. This is essentially a generalization of the resource theory of coherence, possibly allowing for insights into the advantages of quantum over classical computation. Previously I worked on contextuality in quantum mechanics and the relation to non-locality and hidden variable theories.
