- I am a mathematical physicist. My research is primarily in quantum theory, with an emphasis on algebraic quantum field theory. This involves using operator algebra theory, among other mathematical tools, to address conceptual and mathematical problems in quantum field theory, which itself seeks to describe the fundamental constituents of matter and their laws of interaction. Immediate side interests include probability theory and geometry, on the one hand, and the history and philosophy of science, particularly physics, on the other.
