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 UAM - 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.

Enrique Zuazua Iriondo develops an intense Science outreach agenda for society gathered at the enzuazua site!

  • Dual PhD degree (1987 and 1988). “Université Pierre et Marie Curie”, Paris, France
  • Bachelor degree in Mathematics from the University of the Basque Country, Spain
