Current position:

PhD student.


Facultad de Ciencias Físicas Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). Departamento de Física de la Tierra y Astrofísica.

Field of research:

Cosmic magnetism.

What is your career trajectory to date?

I graduated from the Bachelor in Physics at UCM in 2022. Following that I graduated from the Master in Theoretical Physics at UCM in 2023, and since November 2023 I’m a PhD student at the Astrophysics department at UCM.

What are the most exciting open questions in your research area?

Neither the origin nor the evolution of primordial magnetic fields (PMF) in the Universe are yet known, although their existence is well established. Once we know more about PMF lots of fundamental questions could be answered: missing baryons etc.

What role do you think a network like COSMIC WISPers can play in developing WISP searches in Europe?

Science is meant to be done collaboratively, hence, a network of scientists that work on related topics, in this case WISPs, encouraging the interchange of knowledge and ideas as well as providing training to younger students entering the field is of great value to the community. This Action can help create a solid European network of physicists working on this field that can lay the groundwork for future generations.
