I am a Postdoctoral theoretical physicist focused on the theoretical description of low dimensional exotic superconductivity and related phenomena such as superconducting transport, Andreev and Majorana Bound States or Yu-Shiba-Rushinov states in novel nanodevices, an area broadly referred to as mesoscopic superconductivity.

I obtained my B.Sc. in physics in 2017, and my M.Sc. in Condensed Matter Physics and Biological Systems in 2018 both from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), Spain. In 2018, I began my PhD work on “Superconducting Transport in 1D and 2D Topological Nanostructures” under the supervision of Prof. Alfredo Levy (UAM). My research aimed to characterize topological regimes in low dimensional topological Josephson junctions by means of transport, and local spectral properties, taking advantage of Green’s function techniques. I am currently working in the theoretical study of Quantum Dot based minimal Kitaev chains in hybrid setups involving superconducting and normal leads.
