María José Calderón

My research interests range from electronic correlations in novel superconductors, like twisted bilayer graphene, 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, oxide heterostructures,  Fe based superconductors and diluted magnetic semiconductors. Find a list of my publications here.

I work at ICMM-CSIC since 2007, got tenure on March 2011 and promoted to Senior Scientist in 2023. Previously I spent 3+ years at the Theory  of Condensed Matter group in the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, as a postdoctoral Junior Research Fellow of Churchill College, and two years as a research associate at the Condensed Matter Theory Center, University of Maryland. 

I am the director of the new Master’s Degree in Quantum Technologies created by the Quantum Technologies CSIC platform in collaboration with Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo and other 9 leading institutions in Spain. Admission to the master for the 2024-2025 edition is now open, until May 30th 2024. 

Since October 2018 I am  a member of the Editorial Board of Physical Review B. 

I have been in the management team of “Physics and its applications” at the Agencia Estatal de Investigación (the Spanish funding agency) in the period July 2018 – November 2021.

I was president of the Condensed Matter Physics Division-GEFES of the Spanish Royal Physics Society from January 2016 to October 2020 and vicepresident the two previous years. Check the division webpage for jobs, conferences, and research news from the Spanish Condensed Matter Community.

I was co-chair of CMD2020GEFES online, the merge of European and Spanish Condensed Matter Divisions Scientific meetings, that was held online from August 31st to September 4th. In January 2021 I was elected as member of the EPS-CMD board.
