Research

I am a young post-doc in the T30f group at the TUM Physik-Department (Munich), specially skilled on computational techniques. I am focused on Effective Field Theories (EFTs) and the strongly interacting regime of Quantum Field Theories, applied to the field of heavy quarkonia. Note that this is a swift from my PhD topic, more focused on a (hypothetical) strongly interacting electroweak sector at the LHC.

I have recently collaborated with Prof. Fernando Sols and Dr. Ivan Pedro Zapata (from the Complutense University of Madrid) about a condensed matter project related with the XAS spectrums of certain configurations of fermions. This is a short collaboration based on a short-term post-doc contract. However, I already had collaborated with Prof. Fernando Sols for my TFM (Master's thesis).

On 7th July of 2016, I obtained my PhD with the dissertation Study of the Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector for the LHC (published in Springer Theses), supervised by Profs. Felipe J. Llanes-Estrada and Antonio Dobado González (Effective Theories in Modern Physics Group at the Complutense University of Madrid).

My PhD work is focused on the study of the phenomenology associated with a hypothetical electroweak symmetry breaking sector (EWSBS) with strongly interactions. That is, a QCD-like theory (composite Higgs?) for the new physics that may describe the EWSBS at the TeV scale, which is being tested at the LHC. I used an Effective Field Theory (EFT) at the NLO level, and dispersion relations (unitarization procedures). I employed FeynRules-FeynArts-FormCalc for the NLO computations. Furthermore, I also needed different programs like Mathematica, Phython, FORTRAN compilers,... to deal with the unitarization. You can see here one of the videos I used for my PhD dissertation, and the explanation about the programs I used to create it.

As part of my PhD work, I have also collaborated with the LHCHSXWG at CERN. As a result of this collaboration, I am a coauthor of the Yellow Report 4.

Besides my work with the EWSBS, I collaborated with the "Ramón y Cajal" researcher Jose Alberto Ruiz Cembranos. This collaboration produced a publication about Kaluza-Klein (extra-dimensional) models.

I have collaborated, since september 2011, with the Juan de la Cierva researcher Pedro Bargueño de Retes and Prof. Fernando Sols Lucia, within the Bose Einstein condensation field. See, for example, [PRA85, 021605] and the key article [PRE86, 031102]. This collaboration is the topic of my TFM (Master's thesis), to obtain the title of Master en Física Fundamental.

In both cases, I used different kinds of computing clusters to perform the calculations. The most powerful one was the Tirant, which is part of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Furthermore, the research group at UCM afforded for the maintenance of a small cluster formed by twenty quad-core computers and hosted in a laboratory of the Theoretical Physics I Department.

Lastly, I obtained a summer grant (JAE-Intro) in the Institute for Theoretical Physics (IFT), CSIC. It was a two month grant, developed during the months of july, august and september of 2011. My supervisor was the professor Juan García-Bellido Capdevila, with an active presence in Internet. See, for example, his blog or his Google Scholar account. My work at the IFT was seeking the scientific literature for updates to constraints over alternative theories of the composition of dark matter (actually, primordial black holes). See, for example, [PRE54, 6040].
