David Rodríguez obtained his bachelor’s degree in Physics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2018 and, his master’s in Condensed Matter Physics with a nanophysics specialization in 2019.

He started his research career as a research assistant at the Condensed Matter Physics department during his bachelor’s and later during his master’s. He helped to develop semiconductor nanowire-based devices. He did his final master’s project in Eindhoven (Netherlands) with an Eramus+ grant, where he studied the electrical properties of PbTe nanowires. Currently, he is working as a specialized technician at Centro de Astrobiología (CSIC-INTA), where he is helping in the development of superconducting circuits.

His experience is based on the design and fabrication of devices in the clean room and the measurement of electrical properties at low temperatures. Furthermore, he finished several online courses focused on quantum computing and programming in Python.
