Assistant Professor (UD), Quantum Group. | contact info

My research is in quantum information, automated reasoning, category theory, graphical calculi, and graph rewriting. A major focus of my work is the use of graphical languages to better understand (physical, mathematical, logical, ...) processes.

Before I was in Nijmegen, I was a postdoc in the Quantum Group in the Oxford Computer Science Department and a Junior Research Fellow of Wolfson College. I completed my PhD in Oxford in 2012. My thesis was entitled Pictures of Processes: Automated Graph Rewriting for Monoidal Categories and Applications to Quantum Computing.

Research & Updates



I am teaching two courses this year: Matrix Calculation (bachelors, computing science), and Quantum Processes and Computation (masters, MFOCS).
