I have interests on high granular calorimetry R&D, electroweak and QCD physics with
heavy quarks, future colliders and strong field QED experiments (LUXE).

In my thesis we published the most precise, at the date, measurement of the top quark mass with a novel method proposed by us (with Juan Fuster and Peter Uwer as directors) and using ATLAS data. After my PhD, I decided complement my expertise on phenomenology and data analysis with detector R&D expertise, joining the CALICE collaboration. First I worked at DESY as postdoc fellowship and later as a postdoc at the Irene Joliot Curie Laboratory (IJCLab, formerly known as LAL) in Orsay, France. My position at Orsay was funded by the PRESTIGE programme linked to the Marie Curie European fellowship programme. During both postdoc prediods, I combined my instrumentation activities with phenomenological work on heavy quark physics at the LHC and future Higgs factories.
In 2021 I returned to IFIC with a CIDEGENT contract from the Plan GenT programme of the Generalitat Valenciana with a project for the development of detectors and physics potential studies for future lepton colliders. Since then, IFIC has joined, after my requests, the CALICE collaboration and the LUXE experiment (at DESY and the European XFEL accelerator). The former is the leading collaboration on high granular calorimetry R&D for future colliders. The latter is a new experiment (approval in process) to study quantum electrodynamics phenomena in non-perturbative regimes and to search for new physics as ALPs (axion like particles).
I believe that the future of the discipline lies in complementing the exploitation of data from large experiments such as the LHC with the construction of new high-energy experiments (Higgs factories) and the exploitation of smaller experiments such as LUXE that allow us to continue advancing knowledge while creating an environment conducive to R&D in technology and the training of future researchers.
