I was born in Santiago de Chile on a warmish Autumn day in the mid-80s. I decided to course the Physics program at Universidad Catolica de Chile (a.k.a, PUC), from which I obtained my B.Sc and M.Sc degree in Physics under the supervision of Prof. Miguel Orszag. My research, back then, was focused on Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in cQED. In 2011, I was awarded a 4-year scholarship from the Chilean government (Conicyt) to course a Ph.D. degree at University College London (a.k.a UCL), this time under Prof. Sougato Bose’s supervision. During this time, I not only enjoyed the friendly British pubs, or the more-than-occasionally afternoon football with friends, but also I investigated on cavity quantum optomechanics and hybrid spin-optomechanical systems. After my Ph.D. degree, I returned to PUC to work as the principal investigator with Prof. Orszag, thanks to a 3-year postdoctoral grant funded by the Chilean government (Fondecyt). Currently, I’m part of Prof. Abolfazl’s group in Chengdu under the Talent Introduction Program, where I’ve focused my research on quantum metrology. 

I enjoy playing blues and progressive rock electric guitar in my leisure time, also shooting with my DSLR camera and reading non-scientific literature.
