I have three research areas: (a) probabilistic systems (b) logic and computation and (c) quantum information theory. I work on approximation of continuous-state systems and associated metrics and logics. Lately I have been working on Stone duality for Markov processes and completeness theorems for Markovian logics. In logic and computation I am interested in security and modal logics for reasoning about information flow and in incorporating modalities into the programming language. My main recent activity is using Stone-type dualities to minimize automata of various kinds. I am also interested in Tannaka-type theorems for C* algebras. In quantum information theory I work on informatic phenomena in relativistic situations.

Helle Hvid Hansen and I are organizing a workshop on Coalgebras in Quantum Physics at Bellairs in March 2015. Joel Ouaknine is also organizing a parallel workshop on Infinite-state systems.
The editorial boards on which I serve are accessible through Links above.
