Rob Leigh and his research group study quantum information structures in continuum quantum field theories, especially topological field theories, as well as their relevance to gravitation. The group has established many detailed results and developed computational techniques for entanglement measures in Chern-Simons theories, including interesting connections with conformal field theories and knot theory. A key link between quantum information concepts and energy conditions in gravity was recently established by the group.
