Elisa Maria Alessi | IMATI-CNR

My research is focused on astrodynamics problems, by means of dynamical systems tools, perturbation theory and numerical methods. My main lines of investigation are:

  • space debris dynamics, with special emphasis on passive end-of-life solutions and long-term sustainability;
  • low-energy orbits for the exploration of planet-satellite systems;
  • dynamical modelling of solar radiation pressure effect for orbit design;
  • third-body effect for natural and artificial bodies.



Juan M. Lopez | Arizona State University

Juan Lopez conducts research in two broad areas:

Rotation and buoyancy dominated flows, addressing the transitions from laminar to turbulence, resolving in detail the complex bifurcational processes involved. These are of fundamental interest and have applications in geophysics, aerodynamics and industrial processes. The tools used include direct numerical simulations of the Navier-Stokes equations and the extensive use of dynamical systems theory to unravel the spatio-temporal complexity involved. These lines of research have been consistently supported by National Science Foundation (CBET and DMS).

Interfacial hydrodynamics, addressing the influence of surfactants, such as lung surfactants, and more recently proteins which have a tendency to form amyloid fibrils at sheared interfaces. These are of interest due to their prevalence in neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. These lines of research have been consistently supported by National Science Foundation (CBET and DMS) and NASA (Biophys.).

Graduated (1991) and PhD (1995) from the Universidad Complutense. Professor (2002) of Applied Mathematics at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha. He is director of the Institute of Mathematics Applied to Science and Engineering at UCLM.

He has published 160 indexed research articles that have received 8,000 citations and has an H-index of 45 (Google Scholar). He is a member of the editorial board of the journals “Cancers”, “European Radiology” and editor-in-chief of “Physica D”. He has been a member of the evaluation committee of Marie Curie fellowships and of many other international programs in Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Physics and Oncology. He has given plenary talks at international congresses on Mathematical Physics, Applied Mathematics and Oncology, including ‘public speaker’ at ICIAM in 2019.

His main contributions are framed in the field of theory and approximation methods and numerical simulation of nonlinear waves in physical systems (ultracold quantum gases, liquid light, nonlinear optical systems, etc.). In this field, he has studied various problems theoretically and predicted the existence of structures of physical interest that have subsequently been generated experimentally.

He is currently focused on the use of mathematical tools to address cancer problems. Among them, the development of biomarkers with prognostic value and response to treatments and the computational design of optimal treatment strategies, including novel immunotherapy treatments, stand out. In this field, he has obtained results of practical relevance in: gliomas, lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and pediatric leukemias.

Tomás Alarcón | ICREA-CRM

Session: Biology

I studied Physics for my Bachelor degree and went on to earn a PhD in Physics (November 2000). Upon obtention of my PhD degree, I moved to Oxford where I took up a postdoc position at the Centre for Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Institute, where I started my research in modelling tumour growth working with Helen Byrne (Nottingham) and Philip Maini (Oxford), a subject that I still pursue. After three years in Oxford (from January 2001 to December 2003), I moved to London as a postdoc at the Bioinformatics Unit, University College London, with Karen Page (now in the Mathematics Department). There I worked in modelling tumour dormancy and the dynamics of cell surface receptors. In December 2006, after a short stay in Madrid, I joined the programme Complexity and Networks, lead by Henrik Jensen, at Imperial College, London as a postdoc to work in evolutionary processes under epigenetic regulation. In December 2009, I joined the Mathematical Biology group in the Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) as a BCAM researcher and Group Leader.

As of November 2010, I work at the Centre de Recerca Matematica (Bellaterra, Barcelona) where I lead the Computational & Mathematical Biology group.

Luis Rández | Universidad de Zaragoza

Session: Numerical Dynamical Systems



Fabio Revuelta | Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

Session: Chemistry

The three research lines I am currently working on all have in common that they pursue a better understanding of the behavior of microscopic systems, especially from the dynamic point of view. The work I have done has materialized in five indexed publications since 2010 and has been financed with two projects from the National Plan and one European Project, as well as numerous scholarships and grants, both national (UPM) and international (Humbold Center for Modern Optics and DAAD).

On the one hand, I have made contributions to better understand the influence of classical structures on the quantum behavior of the system through the so-called (semi-classical) scar functions in collaboration with researchers from the Autonomous University of Madrid, the CNEA in Buenos Aires and from my university (UPM).

On the other hand, I have developed new perturbative methods to calculate the reaction rate of a chemical system that interacts with its environment, within the framework of the transition state theory, in collaboration with researchers from Loughboorugh University (United Kingdom), Georgia Institute of Technology (USA), UAM and UPM.

More recently, I have started to study the few-body problem in systems of cold atoms (Bose-Einstein condensates) in collaboration with researchers from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany).
