New Member in the Theory group

May 11, 2022

Theory Division

Mario Herrero has just joined the Theory group as a Juan de la Cierva Postdoc researcher.

Mario got his physics degree from the University of Oviedo, Spain and his MsC and PhD at the Instituto de Física Teórica UAM-CSIC, in Madrid. He moved to Switzerland to start a postdoc position at EPFL, Lausanne and SISSA. Mario’s research interest includes the study of Hořava Gravity, as well as some related models, not only at the theoretical level but also with the prospect of being able to perform observations in the future with the help of new gravitational wave experiments.

Welcome to IFAE, Mario!
