Research lines: Nanoscale Heat Transport

Hello everyone! I am Óscar Mateos, a physicist. I studied at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), where I received my Degree in Physics, and my Master in Physics of Condensed Matter and Biological Systems. Soon after I finished my studies, I started to pursue my Ph. D. under the supervision of Guilherme Vilhena (Institute of Materials Science of Madrid) and Juan Carlos Cuevas (Autonomous University of Madrid).

Currently, my research is focused in nanoconfined liquids, particularly water, using computational tools such as Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. My goal is to understand the main mechanisms behind heat transport in this kind of systems. This work is being done in close collaboration with experimental groups at the UAM.

If you wish to know more about this fascinating and still unexplored regime in the nanoscale, feel free to contact us and join.
