I have three research areas: (a) semantics and logics for probabilistic systems (b) logic and computation and (c) machine learning. I work on approximation of continuous-state systems and associated metrics and logics. I am working on a quantitative extension of equational logic. I have been working on Stone duality for Markov processes and completeness theorems for Markovian logics. I am also interested in duality for automata and using it for minimization. Recently I have begun working on approximate minimization. I am also interested in Tannaka-type theorems for C* algebras. I have occasionally made forays into general relativity and quantum mechanics, the subject of my PhD thesis which continues to interest me.

Bob Coecke and I recently organized a workshop on Causality in Quantum Mechanics at Bellairs in March 2016.
The editorial boards on which I serve are accessible through Links above.
