■ Research

I develop my research in differential geometry and its applications to mathematical physics, mechanics and field theory. I am part of the GEOMVAP group. We collaborate with other groups, in particular with those in the Geometry, Mechanics and Control Network.

My PhD advisors were Narciso Román-Roy and Xavier Gràcia Sabaté. You can find my thesis here.
