Jerónimo Maze

Main researcher

Jero R. Maze is an Associate professor and Director of Research and Postgraduate Studies at the Institute of Physics of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. He is an industrial electrical engineer and earned his PhD in Physics from Harvard University in 2010. Professor Maze researches at the interface between condensed matter and quantum optics.

Carolina Parra

Main researcher

Dr. Parra joined the Department of Physics at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (UTFSM) in 2013 and directs the Nanobiomaterials Laboratory since its creation in 2016. Prior to joining UTFSM, Dr. Parra was postdoctoral fellow of Dr. Hari Manoharan’s Group in the Physics Department at Stanford University (2009-2013) where she studied local electronic properties of quantum materials such as nanostructured topological insulators and high-Tc superconductors.

Francisco Muñoz

He earned is PhD in physics at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and he was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics at Halle, Germany. Dr. Munoz’s research is in condensed matter physics, but close to materials science.

Loïk Gence

Associated researcher

Graduated in Electrical Engineering in 2003, he received a PhD degree in Applied Sciences (2010) from the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL, Belgium). After a three-year young talent fellowship (BJT) in Brazil, he joined the Institute of Physics of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2016. His research group deal with the characterization of low-dimensional materials for their integration in future electronic applications.
