Gerardo Oleaga
PhD in Applied Mathematics, Universidad Complutense de Madrid

Graduated in Mathematics from Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina in 1991. Teaching assistant at Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina from 1993 to 1995. I did my graduate courses in the program of Engineering Mathematics in Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and obtained my Phd in the former Department of Applied Mathematics of Universidad Complutense de Madrid. During the academic year 2003-2004 I visited the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Sciences, Leipzig as a postgraduate fellow. Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Analysis since 2005.

I’ve been collaborating with the Department of Mathematics, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad Nacional de Colombia and the postgraduate program in Facultad de Ciencias Naturales y Museo de La Plata, Argentina.
