Quantum Information and Control

The research focuses on quantum systems, their control and the emerging applications in information technologies. In particular, we are interested in probabilistic models for quantum noise and quantum feedback, generation of entangled states (i.e. states that exhibit multi-system quantum correlations, not reproducible using classical variables) on networks of systems, and quantum walks on graphs. Key aspects include assessing scalabiltiy, speed and robustness of the control strategies. Ongoing research projects aim to study:   

  • Stabilizability of entangled states on networks and applications to quantum sampling;
  • Stochastic stability and speed of convergence for classical and quantum models;
  • Quantum lifts for random walks on graphs, their simulation and their advantages;
  • Quantum thermodynamics from a control theoretic viewpoint;
