Antonio is a theoretical physicist with a broad research portfolio in modern theoretical condensed matter physics. He received his bachelor in Theoretical Physics by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and his PhD by the State University of New York at Stony Brook under the supervision of Prof. Jac Verbaarschot.

He has held research appointments in the Université Paris-Sud and Princeton University (2004-2009) where he was also lecturer and a Marie Curie Fellow for three years. He was assistant professor in the University of Lisbon and then staff member of the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University for six years until he joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University as a tenured associate professor.

He has over one hundred publications, including papers in Nature Materials, Physical Review X, Physical Review Letters and Nanoletters, and over forty invitations to international conferences. He has supervised nine postdocs, six PhD students and several master students. He has been the recipient of awards and grants from public research agencies and private foundations in UK, European Union, Portugal, Japan and Spain including Marie Curie, MECD-Fullbright and EPSRC Career Acceleration fellowships. He is a referee for leading research journals such Nature Physics and also funding agencies in Netherlands, Germany, Argentina and UK. He has active collaborations, and recent papers, with senior researchers in MIT, UC Santa Barbara,  RIKEN N, Kyoto University, Harvard University and Cambridge University.

Highlights of his previous research includes a theory of finite size effects in blackbodies and nano-superconductors and its experimental demonstration, the development of a novel theory of defect formation in dynamical phase transitions, a semiclassical analytical description of the Anderson metal-insulator and its characterization in quantum chaotic systems. 

The main themes of his current research are low dimensional quantum gravity, especially the physics of quantum wormholes,  and low dimensional superconductivity.
