I am queer, trans, LGBTQ and Iā€™m a physicist and computer scientist. //

I am a Spanish physicist and computer scientist working on quantum computation, simulation, foundations, and complexity. I am a woman, I am trans, queer, and pan. My pronouns are “she/her.ā€ My recent work focuses on quantum devices showing computational advantages, and resource theories of quantum computational power. I also work on the classical simulation of quantum computers. I am a Marie Curie – Athenea3i fellow at University of Granada, Spain. From 2016-2018, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Free University of Berlin, Germany. From 2010-2015, I did my master and PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, Munich, Germany. I promote equity and labor rights in science and technology. I am cofounder of the quantum information workshop ā€œQ-Turn: changing paradigms in quantum science,ā€ which promotes diversity, inclusion, equal opportunity, labor rights, and responsible research. I am cofounder and former member of the Max Planck PhDnet Equal Opportunity group (2014-2018). I fight harassment in the work environment. I graduated in physics (2010) and computer science (2011) from the University of Salamanca, Spain. As an undergrad, I shared a first-prize in the XX Young Investigator Contest 2008, for a proposal to design non-invasive neonatal intensive care units.
