Dr. Soler obtained his PhD in June 2010 in University of Murcia and since then has been a postdoctoral researcher, collecting 24 months of postdoctoral experience in Fernández-Alberti and Patrícia Faísca groups. His fields of interest are the folding protein and the interaction and energy transport in proteins. His area of expertise is in classical and hybrid quantum-classical simulation techniques (Monte Carlo, Molecular Dynamics, Mean Field Theory and Surface Hopping), code development, and vibrational normal modes analysis for the study of the behaviour of proteins in solution under non-equilibrium conditions regime.
