I am a PhD student at the University of Buenos Aires. My main research interests are in aspects of non-equilibrium thermodynamics of quantum systems and the link between thermodynamics and information theory. In particular, during my early stages of my PhD I focused on the topic of the definition of work in quantum systems and on the development of techniques to measure work and work probability distributions of quantum systems. More recently, I have focused on the role of correlations among subsystems in single-shot thermodynamic processes and how they can be viewed as a mechanism for the emergence of standard reversible equilibirum thermodynamics from the single-shot irreversible non-equilibrium regime.
