-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.
