Research Interests

Condensed matter at extreme conditions generated by laser-driven compression. X-ray diffraction and X-ray absorption spectroscopy.


My research is focused in first principles atomistic methods in the context of high-pressure physics, modeling of pump probe experiments (x-ray absorption and optical properties) and equations of state calculation.
I am also developing methods for electronic structure calculations to incorporate the effect of finite magnetic field in density functional algorithms.
