I am a theoretical physicist working in the description of complex quantum systems with applications in quantum simulation, quantum computing and quantum metrology. My research is quite multidisciplinary and it involves the fields of quantum optics, many-body physics and the physical description of systems like trapped ions and ultracold atoms.

This is a selection of some of my recent publications:
