I am an Assistant Professor of "Quantum Information Theory/Theoretical Quantum Computation" at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of the University of Cambridge, since April 2024. 

Until March 2024, I was a Junior Professor (W1) of "Mathematical Methods of Quantum Theory" in the area of Mathematical Physics at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen.

Between January 2020 and September 2021, I was a postdoctoral researcher (in particular a MCQST Distinguished PostDoc from October 2020 to September 2021) at the Chair of Mathematical Physics of the Technische Universität München, in the group of Michael Wolf and Robert König. I was also associated to the Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology.

Previously, I obtained my PhD in Mathematics at Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, supported by a fellowship La Caixa - Severo Ochoa, under the supervision of David Pérez-García and Angelo Lucia, in the group Mathqi
