- | My main research is in the areas of quantum information and foundations of quantum mechanics. More specifically, I like to establish connections between these two fields. Among other things, I’ve done work on [[http://arxiv.org/find/quant-ph/1/AND+au:+Galvao+abs:+Wigner/0/1/0/2004,2005/0/1|discrete Wigner functions]], non-locality, contextuality and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communication_complexity|quantum communication complexity]]. I am also interested in different models for quantum computation, especially measurement-based quantum computation. | ||

- | |||

- | The first chapters of [[http://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0212124|my Ph.D. thesis]] include an introduction to some issues on foundations of quantum mechanics and quantum information. I have also written [[http://profs.if.uff.br/ernesto/wiki/doku.php/livro|a short book about quantum computing (in Portuguese)]], at a very introductory level, aimed at a general non-technical audience. | ||

- | |||

- | A complete list of my scientific publications can be found [[http://arxiv.org/find/quant-ph/1/au:+galvao/0/1/0/all/0/1|here]]. | ||

- | |||

- | Currently I am supervising PhD student Raphael Dias on a project on measurement-based quantum computation, and PhD student Daniel Jost Brod on a project studying the relationship between quantum statistics and classical simulability. | ||
