All big efforts and challenges need of a powerful human staff. In order to achieve the objectives of the projects in which the Chair of Computational Mathematics is involved a multidisciplinary team has been formed. Here you can see the people related to the Chair of Computational Mathematics as past members:

Internships

Michael SchusterMichael Schuster was a PhD student at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen, Germany. He finished his master studies in Industrial Mathematics in 2017 and since then he was working with the controlabillity of hyperbolical systems and optimization with probabilistic constraints. He was in Bilbao for a 3 month internship under the supervision of Professor Enrique Zuazua.

Yuhua ZhuYuhua Zhu was a Ph.D student in Department of Mathematics at University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, Wisconsin-USA). Her interests lied in computational mathematics and uncertainty quantification.

Cesare MolinariCésare Molinari was PhD student in Applied Mathematics at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Valparaíso, Chile). His scientific interests were related to numerical algorithms for maximal monotone variational inequalities and convex non-differentiable optimization. In this context, his research was focused on the design of the algorithms, on the analysis of the asymptotic properties and of the rate of convergence. This theory finds natural applications in sparse optimal control of PDE and reconstruction of images. He was doing an internship in Control Theory under the joint supervision of professor Enrique Zuazua.

Staff Members

Javier MartínJavier Martín was the Computational Technician at the research project funded by the European Research Council Advanced Grant “DYCON: Dynamic Control”. He developed his career in the scope of the information technologies from his studies of engineering, passing through his activities as senior developer and systems analyst. He was vocational training teacher on information systems and applications.

Hector OlmedoHéctor Olmedo was the Computational Technician at the research project funded by the European Research Council Advanced Grant “DYCON: Dynamic Control”. He developed his career in the scope of the information technologies from his studies of computer science in the Faculty of Engineering in the University of Deusto (Bilbao, Basque Country-Spain), passing through his activities in different companies. He earned his Ph.D. degree in the department of computer science in the University of Valladolid (Valladolid-Spain).

PhD Students

Aitziber IbañezAitziber Ibáñez was a PhD student at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). She finished her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in June 2009. She studied Master’s degree in Computational Engineering and Intelligent Systems, also in (UPV/EHU).

José LorenzoJosé Vicente Lorenzo is a PhD student at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). He finished his MSc Industrial Engineering at the University of Seville in 2014. He has worked at CERN in Superconducting Magnets group (Geneva, SWITZERLAND) and Spanish organism for Research in Energy and Environment CIEMAT. Currently, he is working on his PhD in the area of Control Theory, under the joint supervision of Professor Enrique Zuazua.

Postdoctoral Researchers

Yubiao ZHANGYubiao ZHANG earned his Ph.D. degree in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, Wuhan University, P. R. China. His research interests were related to control problems. He holded a Postdoctoral position at the ERC Advanced Grant project DyCon under the supervision of Prof. Enrique Zuazua.

Víctor Hernández-SantamaríaVíctor Hernández-Santamaría earned his Ph.D. degree in the department of automatic control in CINVESTAV (Mexico), under the supervision of Luz de Teresa (Instituto de Matemáticas, UNAM, México) and Alexander Poznyak (CINVESTAV). His research interests are related to control problems for coupled parabolic equations, especially, those arising in the insensitizing control and hierarchic control problems, both from a theoretical and numerical point of view. He holded a Postdoctoral position at the ERC Advanced Grant project DyCon under the supervision of Prof. Enrique Zuazua.

Visiting Professors
Leontine NkambaLeontine Nkamba got her PhD in Mathematics from University of Lorraine (France) and University of Gaston Berger (Senegal). Her thesis was Modelling of Imperfect Vaccine and Robustness of Basic Reproduction Rate. Her research areas are applied mathematics and scientific computation and mathematical modelling of infectious diseases. She was deputy director of National Advanced School of Posts, Telecommunications and Information and Communication Technologies (SUP’PTIC) and senior lecturer at University of Yaoundé I. Leontine was awarded a research placement by the program Science by Woman promoted by Women for Africa Foundation in collaboration with Diputación Foral de Bizkaia. This research was carried out in the Chair of Computational Mathematics of Deustotech-Deusto Foundation during 2018.
