New postdoc Juan Miguel Nieto Garcia joins the Fields, Strings, and Geometry Group

The Fields, Strings, and Geometry Group welcomes a new EPSRC-funded Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Juan Miguel Nieto Garcia, arriving from the University Complutense of Madrid on 2 September. Juan Miguel is supervised by Alessandro Torrielli, and is collaborating with Andrea Prinsloo, and the two new PhD students Leander Wyss and Mirco di Gioia, on quantum integrable systems of the type appearing in string theory, especially in lower-dimensional instances of AdS/CFT correspondence. The project is for 3 years and is joint with Trinity College Dublin and funded by EPSRC and SFI (link here). The photo below shows Alessandro and Juan Miguel at work, inspired by the light.
