Research Area: FIS/03 - Fisica della Materia
My research focuses on the foundations of quantum mechanics and quantum information theory. Nonclassical correlations observed in physical systems have been recognized as resources for quantum advantages in information processing tasks, such as quantum computation and secure quantum communication. As a consequence, foundational problems, such as the characterization of quantum correlations in spatial and temporal scenarios and the possibility and cost of their optimal classical simulation turned out to be central in understanding the sources and limitations of quantum speedup. This research direction involves a collection of different concepts and approaches ranging from entanglement theory and Bell nonlocality, to quantum contextuality, measurement incompatibility, and temporal correlations, quantum causality and networks, and convex optimization theory.
