Samuel D. Escribano


I am a PhD student working in the theoretical condensed matter physics department at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, under the supervision of Elsa Prada (ICMM-CSIC) and Alfredo Levy Yeyati (UAM). I earned my degree and master’s degree in Physics from the same university with the specialisation in nanophysics.

My research interests include the theoretical study of low-dimensional materials, and more particularly, the emergence of exotic states in mixed superconductor-semiconductor heterostructures and their possible topological properties. Along my PhD, I will focus on the impact of the electrostatic environment on this kind of heterostructures. To this end, I will perform numerical simulations of realistic experiments with a close collaboration with experimental groups. We hope this may be relevant for the development of fault-tolerant quantum computers based on the so-called Majorana quasi-particles, which are quantum topological states that are believed to arise in these heterostructures.
