Short Bio and Interests:
I am Ramón y Cajal tenure-track researcher at IFISC since January 2023. Previously, I was Juan de la Cierva Incorporacion postdoctoral fellow (2021-2023). Before coming back to Spain, I was ESQ Postdoc at IQOQI Vienna (2020-2021) and Postdoc at ICTP Trieste (2018-2020) funded by Scuola Normale Superiore. I obtained my PhD in Physics from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in July 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 information theory, as well as the foundations of nonequilibrium statistical physics and quantum mechanics. I am particularly interested in new ideas for the application of concepts in nonequilibrium thermodynamics to describe and analyze classical and quantum complex systems.
My research has been mostly developed on the theoretical side, but in the last years I gained interest in experimental physics through collaborations with colleages. Part of my research have been covered in popular science journals such as Physics, Quanta Magazine, or Investigación y Ciencia, and local media like Diario de Mallorca.

+ Postdoctoral position (1 + 1 years). Starting from Spring -- Fall 2023.

I am seeking for a highly motivated researcher with previous experience in the fields and techniques of quantum and/or stochastic thermodynamics and open quantum systems: quantum trajectories for monitored quantum systems, collisional models, quantum master equations, full counting statistics, resource theories, stochastic processes ... but other expertises that fit would be also positively evaluated.

Research topics include: Martingale theory for stochastic and quantum thermodynamics, thermodynamics of information and gambling, entropy production estimation, fluctuation relations, open quantum systems under continuous monitoring, non-abelian thermodynamics, thermosqueezing effects, quantum thermal machines and quantum clocks, as well as multidisciplinary applications of non-equilibrium thermodynamics.

The candidate is expected to have a good degree of initiative and would be able to interact with other postdocs and Phd students at IFISC, both working in quantum physics or in other topics, benefiting from the multidisciplinary character of our institute.

For more details please contact me with a cover letter with a brief description of research interest, CV with a list of publications, and the contact information of two references. Qualified candidates from under-represented groups and/or suffering systemic inequalities are specially encouraged to apply.
