Cristina Masoller biography

I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1963. I received my Bachelor (1989) and MSc (1991) degrees in physics from Universidad de la República, Uruguay. I received my PhD (1999) degree in physics from Bryn Mawr College (BMC), Pennsylvania, USA. My PhD thesis was on Nonlinear Dynamics in Semiconductor Lasers with Optical Feedback, supervised by Prof. Neal B. Abraham. Before joining UPC in 2004, from 1986 to 2004 I was Associate Professor at the Instituto de Física, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de la República, Uruguay, where I still have many friends and collaborators (you might have noticed that I keep my web page in Uruguay). At UPC I was a Ramon and Cajal researcher (2004-2009).


Here is my CV (last updated March 2017).
