Jun 20 2022 - 11:00 to 13:00 Francesca María Scarcella Black Hole Phenomenology and Dark Matter Searches

In this thesis we discuss some possible inter-plays between dark matter searches and the physics of black holes.

Jun 17 2022 - 11:00 to 11:45 Gabriel Larios Spectroscopy and truncations from holography and exceptional dualities

This thesis explores the relation between theories in different dimensions, focusing on the physics of string theory compactifications down to $D=4$.

May 30 2022 - 16:30 to 17:30 Ginevra Buratti Aspects of scalar dynamics and vacuum energy in the string swampland program

I will discuss properties of scalar dynamics and vacuum energy in the context of string theory compactifications, and investigate their connection with some swampland conjectures.

May 27 2022 - 12:00 to 13:00 Javier Ugarrio Charm physics with a Lattice QCD mixed action

In this thesis we study a mixed-action Lattice QCD setup, which combines $N_f=2+1$ $O(a)$-improved Wilson fermions and $N_f=2+1+1$ Wilson twisted mass (Wtm) fermions at maximal twist in the valence

Apr 5 2022 - 11:30 to 13:00 Nadir Samos Entanglement in inhomogeneous quantum chains

The basic principle behind this thesis is the improvement of the understanding of phases of matter through the study of quantum entanglement in ground states of inhomogeneous quantum chains.

Jan 21 2022 - 12:00 to 13:30 Pablo Martín The Quest for New Physics: from Supersymmetry and Flavour Models to Data-driven Searches Using Machine Learning at the LHC

The fundamental nature of dark matter and other new particles and interactions that are not described in the Standard Model remains unknown.

Dec 14 2021 - 11:30 to 13:00 Javier Alonso González Phenomenological of the Minimal Linear Sigma Model and of its extensions

In this Thesis the phenomenology of the Minimal Linear Sigma Model and of its possible extensions is analysed.

Oct 7 2021 - 14:00 to 15:30 Eduardo Gonzalo Badia Swampland conjectures: a link between particle physics and String Theory

The Swampland program provides a novel point of view towards string phenomenology.

Oct 1 2021 - 11:00 to 13:00 Salvador Rosauro Alcaraz Neutrino Windows to the Origin of Matter

This thesis focuses on the study of a future neutrino super beam to study neutrino oscillations and probe for the still unknown parameters characteriz- ing the neutrino sector, such as CP violation

Oct 1 2021 - 11:00 to 12:30 Javier Coronado A Systematic Search of Dark Matter Subhalos in Gamma Rays among Unidentified Sources and Constraints on Dark Matter Properties
