Apr 19 2017 - 12:00 to 14:00 Emilia da Silva Holographic Revivals
Jul 28 2017 - 10:00 to 11:00 Sandra Robles The naturalness criterion for supersymmetric scenarios

Supersymmetry (SUSY) has been considered since long ago the leading paradigm of beyond the Standard

Sep 8 2017 - 12:00 to 13:00 Ana Isabel Salvador Counts-in-Cells with the Dark Energy Survey

We use the Counts-in-Cells (CiC) method to obtain the galaxy bias. CiC is a method based on dividing the sphere in cells of the same volume and counting the number of galaxies in each cell.

Sep 13 2017 - 12:00 to 13:00 Sara Saa The Higgs as a pseudo-Goldstone boson

This thesis explores the possibility that the Higgs particle may have a pseudo-Goldstone boson origin.

Sep 14 2017 - 12:00 to 14:00 Aitor Landete D-branes, axion monodromy and large-field inflation
This thesis explores different realizations of large-field inflation in type II string theory compactifications, in presence of the open-string sector, within the context of axion monodromy.

Sep 15 2017 - 11:30 to 12:30 Sjoerd Bielleman Inflating with open strings

We consider the embedding of inflation in Type IIB string theory, with the inflaton given by the position modulus of a D7-brane, an open string.

Sep 15 2017 - 11:30 to 13:30 Josu Hernández The Quest for the Origin of Neutrino Masses
Sep 15 2017 - 12:00 to 14:00 Sergio Adrián Rodríguez Torres The Halo-Galaxy connection from the Large Scale Structure of the Universe

Large-scale structure is one of the most important fields in cosmology. It allows us to study the evolution of the Universe using the distribution of galaxies on the sky.

Sep 19 2017 - 11:30 to 12:30 Pedro F. Ramírez Non-Abelian Black Holes in String Theory

This thesis is devoted to the study of the interaction of non-Abelian Yang-Mills fields with the gravitational field in the context of String Theory and its low energy effective supergravity descri
