After obtaining his Master Degree in Theoretical Physics (ENS-Paris Diderot) in 2010, Federico Zalamea prepared a Ph.D. in the Philosophy of Physics. During his doctorate, he was a member of the SPHERE Laboratory and the ERC Philosophy of Canonical Quantum Gravity project, led by Gabriel Catren (CNRS). He then completed a one-year Post-Doctorate at the University Paris-Diderot, before joining the mathematics department of Efrei as a Research Professor.
Broadly speaking, his research focuses on the conceptual and mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. During his Ph.D., he compared the mathematical structures underlying classical and quantum mechanics. Since then, he has worked on the different interpretations of non-locality and quantum contextuality.
Federico Zalamea also participated in the organization of several workshops and summer schools, which aim to promote interaction between young mathematicians, physicists and philosophers.
