I did my MSc with Lucien Hardy and then worked on the quantum causal dynamics with Prakash Panangaden. I took Dr. Panangaden's course on the semantics of programing languages and now I spend a lot of time thinking about Scott domains and continuous functors. I also like the works of Bob Coecke, Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, Jamie Vicary, John Baez, Chris Isham, Colin McLarty, Lawvere, John Bell, Raphael Sorkin, Fotini Markopoulou. I have three main applications that I look at : physics, economic growth and concurrency. In particular, I am trying to use monads and comonads to do basic physics and as such am studying Haskell as a way to refine my thinking.
