Hi! I’m Samuel D. Escribano, a PhD student working in the Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics Department at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, under the supervision of Elsa Prada (ICMM-CSIC) and Alfredo Levy Yeyati (UAM).

I’m a theoretical/computational physicist studying exotic states in low-dimensional superconductor-semiconductor heterostructures. I’m interested on their possible topological properties and potential applications in quantum computing. Particularly, along my PhD I am focusing on the impact of the electrostatic environment on this kind of heterostructures. To this end, I perform numerical simulations of realistic experiments with a close collaboration with experimental groups.

Research interests: low-dimensional materials, superconductivity, topological materials, quantum computing.
