Research topics:

We analyze theoretically the charge and spin quantum electron transport in quantum dot arrays. We study the manipulation of charge and spin qubits by ac electric and magnetic fields. We also investigate how to directly transfer quantum states between distant edges in quantum dot arrays. We analyze the effect of electron-phonon, hyperfine and spin-orbit interactions on the electron transport. We investigate as well the topological properties of atomic lattices in one and two dimensions under ac periodic time dependent electric fields, i.e., we analyze the interplay between spatial and time periodicities and the effect  on the topology of the system by means of Floquet-Bloch theory.                                                           We investigate as well the detection of Majorana Fermions by means of RSCJ models in Josephson Junctions driven by ac currents.                      We investigate  quantum thermoelectrical properties of nanostructures. We analyze the role of edge states in the thermoelectrical properties  of  systems with non trivial topology. We investigate long range heat and energy transfer in quantum dot arrays and quantum engines.
