I currently have a postdoctoral position at Louisiana State University where I am studying the mathematics of quantum information theory with Mark Wilde and the rest of the Quantum Science and Technology Group. I am interested in how ideas from functional analysis can be applied to problems in quantum information. I am also interested in operator algebras and how ideas from harmonic analysis on groups can be extended to locally compact quantum groups.
If you are one of my Math 2085 students, log in to Moodle for all the course and Linear Algebra related materials that you are looking for.
Before coming to Baton Rouge, I was a postdoc in the Mathematics Department of Universidad Complutense de Madrid, working with the Mathematics and Quantum Information research group lead by David Perez Garcia.
I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My thesis advisor was Professor Zhong-Jin Ruan and my thesis title was "Noncommutative L_p-spaces Associated with Locally Compact Quantum Groups". While at UIUC, I had the pleasure of teaching in a variety of formats and was awarded the Math Department's Brahana TA award for exemplary teaching.
