About me

Enrique Zuazua (Eibar, Basque Country – Spain, 1961) holds an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship at the Friedrich–Alexander University (FAU), Erlangen–Nürnberg (Germany). He is also the Director of the Chair of Computational Mathematics at Deusto Foundation, Universidad de Deusto, Bilbao (Basque Country-Spain) where he leads the research team funded by the ERC – European Research Council Advanced Grant “DyCon: Dynamic Control”. He is also a Professor of Applied Mathematics since 2001 in the Department of Mathematics of the Autonomous University of Madrid where he holds a Strategic Chair.

His fields of expertise in the area of Applied Mathematics cover topics related with Partial Differential Equations, Systems Control and Numerical Analysis. His work in the interface between Control Systems Theory and Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing has led to some fruitful collaboration with different industrial sectors such as the optimal shape design in aeronautics and the management of electrical and water distribution networks.

With over 200 articles published, his work has had an important impact (h-index = 33) and he was recognized as a “Highly Cited Researcher” by the ISI Institute (Thomson) in 2004, also he has supervised 24 PhD students and over 25 postdoctoral researchers.

He holds a degree in Mathematics from the University of the Basque Country, and a dual PhD degree from the same university (1987) and the “Université Pierre et Marie Curie”, Paris (1988). In 1990 he became Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Complutense University of Madrid, to later move to UAM in 2001.
