Research area: Theory And Quantum Information

  • Quantum Information
  • Quantum Thermodynamics
  • Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics


My main research interests are in aspects of non-equilibrium thermodynamics of quantum systems and the link between thermodynamics and information theory, such as the definition of and development of techniques to measure work and work probability distributions of quantum systems; the study of the role of correlations in single-shot thermodynamic processes; and the emergence of standard thermodynamics from the single-shot non-equilibrium regime.
