Actual Position

I am a Professor (Contratado Doctor, I3) of the Departamento de Matemáticas at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

I am PI2 of the Spanish research group MTM2014-52240-P, "Ecuaciones de Difusión No Lineales y Aplicaciones" - "Nonlinear Diffusion Equations and Applications" - PI1 Juan Luis Vázquez and founded by MINECO (Spanish Government).

I am member of the editorial board of the Journal Nonlinear Analysis.

In this academic year 2016/2017 I am teaching two courses at UAM: Partial Differential Equations for students of the Master in Mathematics and Calculus I for students of the 1st year of Engineering (Informatics).




Research Interests

Nonlinear and/or nonlocal partial differential equations:
asymptotic properties, rates of convergence to equilibrium, regularity and Harnack inequalities for degenerate and singular nonlinear -and also nonlocal- parabolic PDE in the Euclidean setting and on Riemannian manifolds. Nonlinear (fast) diffusion flows of porous medium or p-Laplacian type. Total variation flow.

Functional inequalities (also with weights): Sobolev, Gagliardo-Nirenberg, Hardy, Poincaré, Logarithmic Sobolev, [...] and their application to PDE.

Entropy methods for nonlinear flows, in the Euclidean setting and on Riemannian manifolds: a bridge from functional inequalities to PDE and geometry.
