I am Juan de la Cierva (Incorporacion) researcher at IFISC since May 2021. Before coming here I was ESQ Postdoc at IQOQI Vienna (2020-2021) and Postdoc at ICTP Trieste (2018-2020). I obtained my PhD in Physics from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2017 followed by a short Postdoc at IFISC (2017-2018).
My research interests cover different topics related to quantum and stochastic thermodynamics, open quantum systems, quantum and classical information theory, as well as the foundations of statistical physics and quantum mechanics. I am open to new ideas specially regarding the application of concepts in nonequilibrium thermodynamics and statistical physics to complex systems.
