My research interests range from strongly correlated electron systems (oxides, novel superconductors) to the study of nanostructures (quantum dots, dopants in Si) for quantum computing.
In the past I also worked on the bulk properties of colossal magnetoresistance materials and diluted magnetic semiconductors and oxides.
I work at ICMM-CSIC since 2007, and got tenure on March 2011. Previously I spent 3+ years at the Theory of Condensed Matter group in the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, as a Junior Research Fellow of Churchill College, and two years as a research associate at the Condensed Matter Theory Center, University of Maryland.
I am currently in the management team of «Physics and its applications» at the Agencia Estatal de Investigación (the Spanish funding agency), a member of the Editorial Board of Physical Review B and the president of the Condensed Matter Physics Division-GEFES of the Spanish Royal Physics Society. Check the division webpage for jobs, conferences, and research news from the Spanish Condensed Matter Community.
I am organizing the Silicon Quantum Electronics Workshop 2019 in San Sebastián, Spain, October 14th-16th. Hope to see you there! Registration is now open.
I am chair of CMD2020GEFES, the merge of European and Spanish Condensed Matter Divisions Scientific meetings. It will be held in Madrid, from August 31st to September 4th. The call for mini-colloquia is open until Nov 15th.
