Short biographical information:
Juan Luis Garcia Guirao is Full Professor of Applied Mathematics at Technical University of Cartagena in Spain. He obtained his Degree in Mathematics at Universidad de Murcia (Spain) in 2001. Covering all the subjects of the Degree in four year, he used the last one for working on his Master Thesis. Under the supervision of Professor Francisco Balibrea, Full Professor of Mathematical Analysis and founder the Dynamical Systems Group of the Region of Murcia he defended his Master Thesis in 2001 and PhD Thesis in 2004. The PhD had European Mention and the predoctoral research stay was done at Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon under the supervision of Professor José Sousa-Ramos, one of the main researchers in Dynamical Systems in Portugal, who passed away in 2007.
He has had several positions in different universities: Universidad de Alicante, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona and Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (now).
In 2011, he became in the youngest Mathematics Full Professor in Spain with 33 years old. Author of more than 60 research papers published in the best journals he has supervised 4 PhD Thesis and more than 10 Master Thesis. He belongs to the Editorial Board of several journals, between them MATCH Commun. Math. Comput. Chem. ranked in first position of the JCR 2010 list (Interdisciplinary Mathematics).
There are three research lines opened: discrete dynamical systems defined in low dimensional spaces, study of the periodic structure of smooth systems using the homological Lefschetz theory and analysis of Hamiltonian systems. Applications of the previous lines to problems coming from the fields of economy, chemistry and engineering are considered.
