Juan Carlos received his physics PhD from the Higher Institute of Technologies and Applied Sciences in Habana, Cuba in 2007. From 2007 to 2009 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Chemical System Engineering, University of Tokyo. In the years 2011 and 2012, he worked on international cooperation projects for the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain in relation to the University of Pinar del Río, Cuba. From 2013 to 2015, he was an assistant researcher at the Department of Chemistry, University of Basel, Switzerland. He is currently an associate researcher at the Department of Earth Sciences and Engineering, Imperial College London, UK.

The major goal of his research focuses on the modeling of atomic-scale phenomena in molecular systems taking into account both the structure and dynamics. The aim is to explain experiments by providing insights into the subjacent mechanisms on the atomic scale. The close interaction between experiments and computer simulations is the procedure followed to make real progress in the understanding the many-body dynamics and energy confinement and relaxation processes. In this respect, the multidimensional nature of dynamics and the accurate accounting for the interactions between the atoms and molecules are fundamental issues. In this intend, molecular dynamics models, ab initio energies and different methods for representing potential energy surfaces are commonly integrated. Among the systems and phenomena of interest are the reactive collisions of few-body systems, photo-induced processes in molecular solids, and more recently, transport phenomena models with applications to waxy oils.

Joan Vázquez is a PhD student in mathematics at Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), working on the field of emergence in physical systems.

He earned a double degree in Industrial Engineering from UPV and École Centrale Paris in 2012, and he completed a master in Mathematical Research at Universitat de València / UPV in 2013. Since that moment, he is also teaching several mathematics courses at Florida State University-Valencia International Program.

His research interests include (but are not limited to) mathematical modelling, complex systems, thermodynamics and quantum physics. As a very long term goal he would like to have a deeper understanding of notions such as causality, space-time and emergence, and he believes that the development of modern mathematical tools is crucial for this purpose.
