My area of expertise is Quantum Field Theory in curved spacetime. I am interested in phenomena appearing within this theory, such as the Unruh effect or Hawking radiation, and more generally on being able to understand and compute how a curved and dynamical geometry affects the behaviour of quantum fields living in it. Recently, I am interested in trying to extend the formalism of Quantum Reference Frames, in which quantum systems can be considered as reference frames describing each other, from standard Quantum Mechanics of particles to the realm of quantum fields.
