About me

At the moment I am a Senior Research Fellow and proleptic Lecturer at the School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Nottingham, UK.

I obtained my PhD in 2010, working in the Department of Atomic and Molecular Physics at the University of Granada, Spain. My work was on information measures of quantum systems and on the study of many-body systems formed by Rydberg atoms.

My research interests are currently:
  • The creation and analysis of many-body states with long-range interactions based on alkaline-earth-metal atoms, which open up a new route for the study of non-equilibrium quantum physics.
  • The phenomenon of glassiness from a quantum perspective. In particular, studying of how the existence of coherence affect the glassiness in these systems and finding realistic quantum systems where this phenomenon arises.
  • The use of highly excited atoms (Rydberg) and their strong interactions for the implementation of correlated phases of matter.
