# Research

I spent five years as a visiting assistant professor at Bucknell University. I previously held a postdoctoral position at Louisiana State University where I studied 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.

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". This involved studying the interaction between the quantum group and the structure of the noncommutative L_{p}-space constructed using the Haar weight.
