I'm an experimental condensed matter physicist and the latest member of the group Phynano. I obtained my bachelor degree from the University of Carabobo in Venezuela my master's degree at the Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC), where I was working in non-centrosymmetric superconductors at the low temperatures laboratory. After this I moved to France where I obtained my PhD in Physics from the Universite Paul Sabatier in Toulouse. Durign this time I worked at the French National High Magnetic Field Lab (LNCMI) in graphene nanoribbons under extreme conditions (high magnetic field and low temperature). My first postdoc was at the French National Metrology lab (LNE) where we demonstrated the exceptional experimental conditions at wich graphene can be use as a quantum Hall resistance standard. After this I moved to the US where I worked as a MRSEC fellow at Columbia University. My work at Columbia was directed, among others, towards the in situ band structure manipulation of van der Waals heterostructures.
In November 2017, I joined the group PHYNANO at C2N to investigate the generation and control of different topological orders in van der Waals heterostructures. To this aim our group combines innovative nanofabrication methods with electronic transport measurements techniques.
