I’m a research scientist in theoretical physics at the University of Bristol. I have a long standing passion for science and technology, and in particular for the foundations of quantum mechanics. I enjoy searching for insights into the way it works, and for phenomena which appear counterintuitive at first glance. I believe that the world operates locally, but quantum mechanics has various phenomena which are non-local when described in our usual (classical) language, such as violations of Bell inequalities, counterfactual communication, and the Aharonov-Bohm effect. I study these and related effects, principally using thought experiments to demonstrate specific tasks which can be performed. I’m interested in non-locality, entanglement, quantum conservation laws, quantum retrodiction, quantum information, quantum computation: anything novel with a quantum component!
