Presentación
  • I graduated in Physics in 1996 at the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (USC) and that year I joined the non-linear Physics Group at the USC as a fellow of the Xunta de Galicia and later on with an FPI fellowship to carry out a phD thesis on the effects of spatio-temporal fluctuations in the excitability on the propagation and emergence of travelling waves in reaction-diffusion systems. Druing this period, I did experimental, theoretical and modeling workg together with short research stays at the University of Barcelona, Max Planck in Dortmund (Germany), West Virginia University in Morgantown (USA). After defending my phD thesis in 2001 with an outstanding cum laude qualification and with four Physical Review Letters publications, I joined the Rey Juan Carlos University (URJC) as full-time Assistant Professor (2001-2004) and in November 2009, I became Associate Professor at the URJC. In 2008 several colleagues from the URJC formed the Complex Systems Group (CSG), whose main line of research has been the study of complex systems (social, biological and technological) within the framework of the theory of complex networks, in particular, the understanding of the relationship between the structure and dynamcics (wave propagation, synchronization) in networks of nonlinear oscillators couplied with non-regular topologies, signifincalty contributing to understand how the route to synchronization can be explosive, a phenomenon that could be the trigger mechanism of epileptic seizures, and important in the management of electric power networks. With the will of starting an experimental line in complex networks, I made several research visits to the Tel Aviv University in Israel, where I learned how to culture neurons in vitro with the goal of characterizing the structure of neuronal networks during their development and its relationship with the neuronal culture functionality. Thanks to a collaboration agreement between the URJC  and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, the CSG joined the Center for Biomedical Technology (CTB) in 2010 forming the group of Biological Networks where we carry out our research whose aim is at unveiling the structure-function relationship, the mechanisms of integration and segregation in neuronal activity and to test new methods of brain functional networks reconstruction that allow the identification of markers in the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases. In the course of my research activity at the CTB I have supervised a phD thesis on the self-organization of neuronal networks in vitro that has allowed the development of an image segmentation tool to longitudinally track and model the network structure. In the last year, we are setting up an equipment to record extracellular potentials in order to analyze the emerging functional network in parallel to the formation of the physical circuitry.
