From Higgs hunting to Sociophysics

I work as a postdoc (scientific research) in Complex Systems, specifically in Socio-physics. We basically build models that try to describe (and eventually, to predict) different social behaviors, like the spread of rumors, a fashion/innovation/opinion adoption, the competition between languages, community patters, etc. Continue reading From Higgs hunting to Sociophysics

Public research in Spain

As many others, I guess, after the undergrad I found myself immersed in the everlasting dilemma between the private companies and the public research, fields that move somehow in parallel in Spain. In that moment, through a professor and friend, I received an offer for a research contract at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Continue reading Public research in Spain

Nanodoctor

Yes, yes, you read it well. I’m a nanodoctor. But we can’t forget I studied physics. Last year, attending an international workshop on Nanomedicine in Malaga (Spain), I had the chance to flip through a lot of resumes of people working in nanomedicine and I realized then that a lot of them were physicists. Continue reading Nanodoctor

Did you know that Stephen Wolfram studied Physics?

Did you know that Stephen Wolfram, the creator of Mathematica, studied Physics and that he actually was a well-known particle physicist? Amazingly enough, he published his first paper when he was sixteen and got his PhD at Caltech when he was 20 years old. Continue reading Did you know that Stephen Wolfram studied Physics?

Professor in private university

Hi everyone.

This work, as in any university, involves teaching and research. In my case there are few physicist coworkers, due to the degree courses that this university offers. Precisely because of this, although people graduated in this university are usually preferred as professors, in the case of physicists the easier way is to get the PhD in a university where the undergrad in Physics is offered.
