Jaume Amorós

Associate professor at UPC
Research area: Geometry

PhD in Mathematics obtained at UB (1996)


I work mostly on topology of closed Kähler and symplectic manifolds. I am a member of the Geometry and Topology research group at UPC and an occasional collaborator of the Seminari de Geometria Algebraica de Barcelona.
Together with Jaume Haro, we develop cosmological models based on Teleparallelism, Loop Quantum Cosmology and the Matter Bounce Scenario to address shortcomings in the inflationary Big Bang paradigm, and test the match between new or existing models and cosmological observations.
I collaborate with the group on magnetic and superconductor materials at ICMAB, Barcelona, computing critical currents on superconductors, by solving the inverse Biot-Savart problem.
