About us - Post-doctoral researchers

Javier Martinez Magan

Javier Magán spent his formative years at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM), majoring in theoretical physics. He received his Masters degree and began research towards his Phd thesis at the Instituto de Fisica Teorica (UAM-CSIC), Spain.

During his Masters program, Javier spent one year studying at the Niels Bhor Institude, of the Copenhaguen University, Denmark.  Dr. Magán`s international visits continued throughout his graduate studies, as he conducted research abroad in the Racah Institute of Theoretical Physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel and in the String Theory Group at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Javier Magán`s central focus is on quantum gravity, holography and string theory. His current work involves exploring problems concerning bulk locality, fast scrambling and other general problems in black hole physics.

At the same time, due to the specific nature of the problems listed before, Javier is eager to continue examining various aspects of quantum information theory.  More specifically, he is interested in the origins of quantum thermalization and quantum chaos, and, therefore, in the insightful phenomenom of entanglement in quantum mechanics.

Summary of research interests:

*Quantum gravity;


*Quantum Thermalization;

*Quantum Information Theory;

*String theory.
