Bob Coecke

Bob is Professor of Quantum Foundations, Logic and Structures at University of Oxford, and a pioneer in the field of categorical quantum mechanics and diagrammatic reasoning, of which his book Picturing Quantum Processes is probably one of the most complete references. His research spans many fields, and is mainly about application of category-theory based diagrammatic reasoning to quantum mechanics, causality in physics and natural language.

Role: Bob is helping us to develop the visual/diagrammatic formalism of Statebox as a whole.

Education: PhD Physics, Vrije Universiteit Brussels

Expertise: Process theories, quantum mechanics, diagrammatic languages
