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.

Areas of research:

Quantum open systems

operator algebras

quantum information

quantum white noise analysis

functional and spectral analysis of dissipative systems

direct and inverse spectral theory

quantum stochastic differential equations

quantum filtering and control

bilinear quantum control

quantum estimation theory

coherent quantum feedback control

quantum networks.
