Teresa Piovesan uses mathematical theories to explore the effects of quantum entanglement, one of the most peculiar phenomena predicted by the theory of quantum mechanics. The idea behind this is that spatially separated quantum systems can be entangled with each other and local operations on one system can influence the states of the other systems. Piovesan investigates the effects of quantum entanglement in non-local games. These are thought experiments involving two cooperating players who are not allowed to communicate with each other but interact with a referee. She also looks at zero-error information theory, a field of mathematics that studies communication problems where no error is tolerated.
