Research

On 7th July of 2016, I obtained my PhD with the dissertation Study of the Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector for the LHC, under the supervision of Profs. Felipe J. Llanes-Estrada and Antonio Dobado González. You may contact them through the group webpage. Since december 2012, I am working in the field of cosmology and effective theories, within the Effective Theories in Modern Physics Group, with a FPI grant.

I am 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 am using an Effective Field Theory (EFT) at the NLO level, and dispersion relations (unitarization procedures).

I am using FeynRules-FeynArts-FormCalc for the NLO computations. Furthermore, I also need 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.

I have 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 have also 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 the professor Fernando Sols Lucia, within the Bose Einstein condensation field. See, for example, arXiv:1207.2093 and the key article arXiv:1202.2971. This collaboration has been the theme of my TFM (Master's thesis), to obtain the title of Master en Física Fundamental.

In both cases, I have had to use 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, we afford 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, arXiv:astro-ph/9605094.
