I am a professor in the Department of Mathematical Informatics at Nagoya University. I work in the field of quantum information science, with a personal penchant for formal rigor, mathematical abstraction, and philosophical musings. My research aims at simplifying the conceptual apparatus of statistical mechanics and quantum physics, especially their foundations, by appealing to probability and information-theoretic arguments. For my research achievements, I was awarded the Birkhoff-von Neumann Prize by the International Quantum Structures Association in 2018. Recently, I have been particularly interested in understanding the role that Bayesian inference plays in physical theories such as thermodynamics and quantum theory. Before becoming a full-time academic researcher, I devoted a large part of my life to classical music, writing fugues and contemporary music, and eventually obtaining a diploma in piano from the Conservatory of Milan.
