Research Description: 

Hector was born on April 1986 in Estado de Mexico (Mexico). In 2008 he received his undergraduate degree in physics working in Prof. Julio Gutierrez-Vega group at ITESM (Monterrey, Mexico). One year later, he moved to the United States to begin his doctoral studies under the supervision of Prof. Poul Jessen where he worked on several experiments to demonstrate quantum control and quantum measurement techniques using ultracold neutral atoms. He obtained his Ph.D. in September 2016 from the University of Arizona (Tucson, USA). During his time in Tucson, Hector and his collaborators demonstrated a protocol to accurately control the internal spin state of cesium atoms. They also demonstrated efficient and robust schemes to perform quantum state and quantum process tomography in the same physical platform. In November 2016, Hector joined the JQI as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Gretchen Campbell where he is building an experiment to produce quantum degenerate gases of sodium and erbium. In this experiment, he and an team of graduate students are planning to investigate superfluity effects, as well as, physics of gases with dipolar interactions.
