Mikel Álvarez Urquiola, new postdoctoral researcher at IFT Mikel did his PhD in the University of the Basque Country (Spain, 2017-2021) and his current research focuses on Supergravity and String Theory, with a special focus on their cosmological applications. Within this vast subject, he has been working on the application Gaussian Random Fields to emulate the String Theory Landscape, the statistical characterisation of the vacua of String Theory, and False Vacuum Decay processes involving membranes.
