Research Interests

This group works in the area of quantum systems in interaction with their environment, and in particular the emergent field of quantum control engineering. This is a highly interdisciplinary field incorporating ideas from (quantum) information theory, (non-commutative) stochastic analysis, mathematical physics for open quantum systems, and modern control theory. The group has an expertise in functional analysis, C* algebras and operator theory which it applies to practical quantum models.
