Research Biography

Research Group on Foundations of Quantum Theory and Information at Sharif University of Technology (SUT) works on conceptual foundations of physics and chemistry including quantum physics, statistical physics and thermodynamics.

In quantum physics, the main research topics are quantum interference and Bell's theorem (including the meaning of reality, non-locality, contextuality, non-separability and entanglement), interpretation of quantum mechanics and manipulating new theoretical models to explain the mysteries of quantum world. Some other topics such as the measurement problem and quantum decoherence are included.

In statistical physics and thermodynamics, the research group focuses on some key concepts like arrow of time, (ir)reversibility of chemical phenomena, and the relationship between entropy and information.

We also work on quantum aspects of life as well as the origin of chirality from different views including quantum and chemical kinetic approaches
