I am a physicist working on the field of quantum information. I got a BSc and a MSc degree from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil) and a PhD from the University of Barcelona (Spain). After my Phd studies I joined the Center for Quantum Technologies, in Singapore, before returning to Barcelona. I am currently a post-doc at the Institute of Photonic Sciences and hold a Ramón y Cajal fellowship. During my scientific carrier I have focused on the study of quantum correlations, including quantum entanglement, nonlocality and steering. I have written 3 review articles and more than 60 research papers on these subjects.
