I am an Associate Professor in Theoretical Physics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), in Barcelona.

I am also a Visiting Scientist at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO).

My research focuses on the microscopic theory
of dilute quantum gases, with particular emphasis on:

In Summer 2021 I will coordinate a 3 months' program at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara (California), entitled Interacting Topological Matter: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Systems.

Applications are already open, and very welcome!


The program will contain an associated Conference, entitled Entangled Quantum States of Matter: Classification, Creation, Manipulation, Detection


In September 2019 I organized a Conference titled Dynamics and interactions in quantum gases, as a Satellite meeting to BEC 2019. The Conference took place in Maó, the capital-city of the island of Menorca:


In Summer 2018 I organized a Meeting on Ultracold Quantum Mixtures in Barcelona:
