I am a physicist with more than 15 years of research experience. My research focuses on quantum effects in electronic transport through nanostructures (quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, etc). During the last few years my activity has focused on hybrid superconductor-semiconductor systems where interesting physical effects such as Kondo, BCS superconducting pairing or magnetic states compete. This fundamental interest, together with the possibility of obtaining Majorana fermions in topological superconductors based on such systems, makes hybrids one of the more exciting topics in modern condensed matter physics.
Before becoming a permanent scientist at CSIC I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Physics Department at Rutgers State University of New Jersey (Prof. David Langreth’s group) and at the Quantum Transport group at Delft University of Technology (Prof. Leo Kouwenhoven’s group).
