Eduardo B. Molinero

Currently, I am a PhD student in the Theory of Quantum Materials and Solid State Quantum Technologies group under the supervision of Rui Silva. I obtained both my bachelor’s degree in Physics and my master’s degree in Theoretical Physics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

My main area of interest is the study of topological and strongly correlated systems with special focus to their non-equilibrium dynamics. Furthermore, I have a keen interest towards computational methods in condensed matter physics. The subject of my PhD thesis will be the study of the interaction of intense ultrafast laser pulses with periodic structures. Up to now, the role of excitons in the strong field regime is not fully understood, therefore, I will explore how excitons change the strong field excitation in 2D materials, such as hBN and MoS2. Accordingly, the thesis will be heavily focused on the development of numerical codes for the propagation of the reduced density matrix in the presence of such a laser field.
