Research Interest:

My main research interest is in Fundamental Physics in the context of Gravity and High Energy. Over the last years I have developed the research program MQGP, which employs the gauge/gravity correspondence to try and elucidate the effect that an intense magnetic field has over the quark-gluon plasma. In this program participate researchers and students from Mexico and other countries. Concerning gravity, I have always been interested in the generalizations of General Relativity, like the f(R) theories and their consequences that I have studied in the past, but also proposals that treat spacetime as an emergent entity. I have recently started research in this last direction from various perspectives, that include, but are not limited to, the gauge/gravity correspondence.
