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 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.
