Rodrigo Soto gained his PhD in physics at the Universidad de Chile, finishing in 1998. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre Europeen de Calcul Atomique et Moleculaire in Lyon, France. Since 2015 he is Full Professor in the Physics Department at the Universidad de Chile. He has been Visiting Professor at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain; Ecole Superieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris, France; and at the University of Oxford, UK. His has worked on different subjects of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, mainly on the dynamics of granular materials, in the dynamical Casimir effect, and in active fluids.
