Welcome to my page. I am a "physical mathematician" in the group of Antonio Acín at ICFO in Castelldefels (Barcelona). My scientific interests revolve around fundamental physics and its natural connections to pure mathematics and computer science.

I'm a bird concerned about the increasing fractionalization and fragmentation of science. I can frequently see people in different "fields" working on essentially the same problem using a different language. Pointing out these connections is one of my major themes. Just studying the puzzle pieces is not enough: we need to put them together. As a start, you may consider learning the languages, motivations and methods used in other areas of science.

Sometimes I like to hang around on Orpheus e.V. or on the n-Category Café.
