My Research Interests

My research focuses on the theoretical description of sensing and polarizing protocols using nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond. Sensing protocols based on dynamical decoupling techniques allow to obtain information on chemical structure of complex molecules in the vicinity of diamond. On the other hand, dynamic nuclear polarization of molecules via nitrogen vacancy centers has important applications in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy since it would greatly increase the standard sensitivity of current scanners. Also, as a direct consequence of the mentioned topics, I am interested in efficient numerical simulation of large spin systems.
