Biography
I studied Physics at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) where I graduated in 2014.  Then I did a master’s degree in materials science at the same university (2015). This master’s degree was focused on liquids (statistical mechanics), solid state and atmospheric physics. After acquiring work experience in software developing and data science, I started my PhD in 2016.
Research Themes
The main research line of my PhD is the modeling and simulation of the thermal properties of PbTe using classical molecular dynamics.
