Fontich, Ernest

I received my PhD in 1985 from Universitat de Barcelona under the supervision of Prof. Carles Simó. I was awarded the Ferran Sunyer Balaguer price in 1987 for my PhD thesis. From 1979 to 1989 I was assistant professor and associate professor at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In 1989 I moved to Universitat de Barcelona, where I am professor since 2006. From 2007-2011 I was the director of the former Departament de Matemàtica Aplicada i Anàlisi (UB).
