I am a PhD student at the department of Condensed Matter Physics, University of Barcelona (UB) since May 2017. I graduated in Physics (BSc) and obtained a Master in Advanced Physics, both from UB. Thereupon, I spent there a short time as a research assistant investigating the navigability of time-varying complex networks.

I joined my present group after building up my research skills in complex systems while enrolled in a previous PhD program at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Nowadays, my research interests are the dynamics and evolution of complex networked systems embedded in hidden metric spaces. My current work is related to mapping complexity, specifically to the modeling of emergent behavior arising from dynamical processes running on top of spatially embedded networks.
