John Henry Reina, D.Phil., Universidad de Oxford (2002).

  • Posdoctorado: Centro para Computación Cuántica & Laboratorio Clarendon, Universidad de Oxford, UK, 2002-2004

Prof. Reina is a Theoretical Physicist from the Universidad del Valle with a Ph.D. in Physics (“Quantum information processing in nanostructures”) from the University of Oxford. As a postdoctoral researcher attached to the Departments of Materials Science and the Center for Quantum Computing at the University of Oxford, he worked for around three years (2002-2004) in a multidisciplinary team in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Computer Science and Engineering that carried out the research program “Nanoelectronics at the Quantum Edge”, a pioneering collaborative project between the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, aimed at the design and construction of nanostructures such as quantum dots and nanotubes for quantum computing and control tasks.

He obtained his bachellor and master degree at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and is doctor (Dr. rer. nat.) from the "Ludwig-Maximillian Universität München". Before joining the Physics Department of the Universidad del Valle in 2013, he worked as a posdoc at the Max-Planck Insitute for the Physics of Complex Systems (Dresden, Germany), Technical University of Munich (Germany), Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) and University of Duisburg (Germany) working in complex systems, atomic and molecular physics, quantum optics and computer science.

Omar Calderon Losada, Dr. en Física, Universidad de los Andes (2019).


Prof. Calderón is a theoretical and experimental physicist with a PhD degree in Science-Physics from Universidad de Los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia). He received his BS degree from Universidad Surcolombiana (Neiva, Colombia) and his MS degree from Universidad Nacional de Colombia (Bogota, Colombia). Before joining Universidad del Valle as a faculty in 2022, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (Mexico City, Mexico). His main working interests are related to nonlinear optics and applications of quantum properties of light in different fields such as quantum information, quantum measurement theory, quantum open systems, quantum optical coherence tomography and ultrafast spectroscopy. He is an enthusiast of data science and automation of experimental processes and has worked on projects that leverage machine learning in applications involving the use of light.
