Presentations

[1]  Dropbox/EEB_RIS   (January 2020, 22 slides)
Entanglement-breaking properties of repeated interaction systems
Summary:

A talk for the Quantum Information Processing group meeting at the Cavendish Laboratory discussing the results of arXiv:1902.08173 placed in the physical context of repeated interaction systems. In particular, I introduce the characterization of faithful eventually-entanglement breaking channels through a series of counterexamples.

Entanglement breaking times for quantum Markovian evolutions
Summary:

A talk at Beyond IID 2019 discussing the results of arXiv:1902.08173, which is work done in collaboration with Cambyse Rouzé and Daniel Stilck França.

When do we lose correlations under partial Markovian evolution?
Summary:

A brief presentation introducing partial Markovian evolution (classically), entanglement, and some of the results from arXiv:1902.08173, which was done in collaboration with Cambyse Rouzé and Daniel Stilck França. This talk was given at the March 2019 CCIMI retreat.

Local continuity bounds for entropies of finite probability distributions
Summary:

A presentation on my work with my supervisor Nilanjana Datta on local continuity bounds for the entropies of finite distributions, presented at the one-day event High Dimensional Mathematics. These are the slides I gave accompanying my short talk, the video of which is here.
