Attention students of Particle Physics 2015-2016
I have assisted with and taught numerous
courses. In 2015-2016 I am handling a group of
Particle Physics (4th year undergraduate Bachelor section).
In addition I will continue teaching 3d year Structure of Matter.
I am also taking up a full section of Physics for Biologists
(group B) and an additional one for exercises only (group E).
Student questions: please refer to the Campus Virtual UCM
The acquisition of a paper or electronic textbook is compulsory for
this class. Halzen and Martin, Griffiths, Aitchison and Hey, etc are
I have been mostly interested in Theoretical Hadron Physics,
This is a subdiscipline that shares from Particle Physics, Nuclear
Physics and Quantum Field Theory.
As of late I am working on strongly interacting extensions of the
standard model's electroweak symmetry breaking sector.
However I keep an eye in developments in other related fields and
subfields, such as Astrophysics and Energy Research.
You can find many of my research articles
through the INSPIRE HEP database.
I have taken part on several of the research grants at Complutense,
among them the one directed by Ramón Fernández
Álvarez-Estrada and the one directed by Antonio Dobado. I belong
to the research
group on Effective Theories.
Undergraduate projects ("Trabajo de Grado")
If you should like to have a look into
theoretical particle physics, theoretical nuclear physics (high
energy), neutron stars, or quantum field theory, I can suggest
you a topic. I can also put you in touch with the LHC
experimentalists if you should like to have a look at what they
are doing. Please contact me towards the end of your third year so you
have time to do summer reading.
We can also design you a masters level project, for our
Masters degree in theoretical physics
See our recent project in 2015: a little
for class demonstrations.
A lot of my time between 2007 and 2015 was taken up with departmental
duties as academic secretary (kind of a deputy director).
I am now serving in the generic Academic Committee of the faculty.
I coorganized QNP06,
the Fourth International Conference on Quarks and Nuclear Physics, in
and also a small meeting on Quark masses and
Hadron Physics, in June 2009, QH09.
Our last meeting at Complutense took place between August 30th and
September 3d 2010, the
IVth International Conference on Quark Confinement and the Hadron
See also the spanish
Physics School (Taller de Altas Energias).
I have recently coorganized an ECT* meeting
Nucleon Matrix Elements for New-Physics Searches
and a larger Seattle INT program on this topical field that
followed in 2015.
In 2016 I have acted as convener of Confinement XII in Thessaloniki, and
Spanish Hadron Network meeting in Madrid
I also support the series of seminars
of Theoretical Physics.
Collaborators and students
collaborators in my generation I had the pleasure to learn from

mentors these years

people and students I tried to help along the way
Some research highlights
If you want to get an idea
of some of the things I work on
without wading through all those journal references, have a look;
that section is naturally always on the works
