Affiliation: Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales (ICMUV). Universitat de València

Fields or areas of research Quantum materials theory and simulation, 2D materials, theoretical solid state physics

Alejandro Molina-Sánchez is Ramón y Cajal researcher at the University of Valencia. He has Ph.D. in Physics (2011). He was a postdoc in the University of Luxembourg where, working with Prof. Ludger Wirtz, he investigated using ab initio approaches the optical excitations and ultrafast dynamics in two-dimensional materials. He also completed a postdoc stay at the group of Prof. Fernández-Rossier at INL (2019), working on 2D magnetic materials.

He is now the leader of the Computational Quantum Materials group based at the Institute of Materials Science (ICMUV) of the University of Valencia. His group applies theoretical physics and computational approaches to study optics, magnetism and electronics of quantum materials applied to quantum computation, ultrafast optics, spintronics and optoelectronic devices. He is recipient of the Ramon y Cajal fellowship. He is Principal Investigator of a SEJIGENT (GVA) and a project of "Generación de Conocimiento" of the I+D+i 2020 National Plan.
