Dr Jesús Rubio

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


I am a theoretical physicist working at the intersection of fundamental physics and probability theory. This vision provides not only a powerful philosophy for the development of better models of nature, but also new principles for the analysis of information associated with natural phenomena.

I joined the Quantum Non-equilibrium group at the University of Exeter in October 2019, after having defended my thesis Non-asymptotic quantum metrology: extracting maximum information from limited data on 18 September 2019 at the University of Sussex. For more information, see my biography

Areas I work/have worked in

  • Mechanics, in all its forms (analytical, quantum, statistical, stochastic, etc). Currently studying that of single molecules within the Molecular Mechanics Initiative
  • Global quantum thermometry, stochastic thermodynamics and non-equilibrium physics
  • Quantum estimation, metrology and interferometry (time, phase, multiparameter problems, Bayesian techniques, etc)
  • Quantum uncertainty relations, correlations and field theory
  • Logic-based probability theory for data analysis

A complete list of my publications and preprints is available via my ORCID iD: 0000-0002-8193-8273
