We are glad to introduce Pere Mujal, Giulia Ruzzene and Andrea Tabi, three new postdoctoral researchers who join IFISC this month.
Dr. Pere Mujal completed his Ph.D. in Physics on "Interacting ultracold few-boson systems" under the supervision of Prof. Artur Polls and Prof. Bruno Juliá-Díaz at the Universitat de Barcelona in 2019. More recently, he has studied the application of supervised-learning and transfer-learning techniques to interacting bosonic systems in the presence of disorder, in collaboration with Àlex Martínez Miguel, Artur Polls, Bruno Juliá-Díaz and Sebastiano Pilati. At IFISC he will work as a postdoctoral researcher with Miguel C. Soriano and Roberta Zambrini on quantum machine learning using reservoir computing.
Dr. Giulia Ruzzene is originally from Italy and after a degree in Mathematics from the University of Udine she moved to Barcelona to continue with a Ph.D. at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. There she worked under the supervision of Dr. Ralph G. Andrzejak and completed a thesis titled "Control of chimera states in oscillator networks". At IFISC, Giulia will work as a María de Maeztu postdoc researcher with Pere Colet and Damiá Gomila. In particular, she will work on modelling power grids in islands characterized by the presence of renewable energy sources.
Dr. Andrea Tabi completed a MSc degree in “Systems and Quantitative Biology” in 2016 and a Ph.D. in Ecology in 2019 at the University of Zürich, Switzerland on modeling the environmental effects on biological networks across scales. Andrea joins IFISC as a María de Maeztu postdoctoral researcher coordinated by Tobias Galla and Emilio Hernández-García with a 1+1 year contract. Her work will focus on modeling ecological networks, species interactions and ecosystem stability.
