María José Calderón


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 am at ICMM 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 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.
