CIMAT Researchers

Dr. José Antonio De la Peña Mena got his doctoral degree in Mathematics from the National University of Mexico at 1983 and made a postdoctoral stay at Zürich from 1984 to 1986. Since then he has a research position at Instituto de Matemáticas of UNAM, institution he directed from 1998 to 2006. His areas of expertise are the representation theory of algebras and the spectral theory of graphs where he has published more than 100 papers in indexed journals with more than 800 citations. He has supervised 7 doctoral thesis, two of which won the best doctoral dissertation prize of the Mexican Academy of Sciences. He was President of the Mexican Mathematical Society (1988-1990), President of the Mexican Academy of Sciences (2002-2004), President of the Mathematical Union of Latin America and the Caribbean (2001-2008). Among other distinctions he won the TWAS Award in Mathematics (2002), the National Prize of Mexico in Science and Arts (2005) and the Humboldt Prize (2006). Since 2003 he is Deputy Director General for Science of the National Council for Science and Technology of Mexico.

Dr. Salvador Botello Rionda received his BSc degree in civil engineer from Guanajuato University in 1985, MSc in structures engineering from de ITESM in 1987 and the PhD as an Engineer of roads, canals and ports (Ingeniero de Caminos Canales y Puertos) form the University Polytechnic of Cataluña, Barcelona Spain in 1993. He is research-Professor in the department of Computer Sciences at the Center of Research in Mathematics (Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas A.C.) in Guanajuato. His research interests are:
  • Genetic Algorithms, Evolutive Optimization, Monte Carlo Techniques, Multiobjective optimization in engineering problems (structures topology)
  • Finite element applications in problems of solids mechanics (truss, frames, bridge) Development of CALSEF, a program of finite element method for solid mechanics applications; finite element in fluid in problems of dynamics (aquifer models, oil field models)
  • Image processing and computational vision. Fringe pattern analysis, image segmentation, depth from stereo, image registration
  • Parallel computing and applications in Differential Partial Equation in: Solid Mechanics, Fluids Mechanics, and Pours Media. Problems Mesh Free, and Atomic Modelling of New Materials.

Dr. Miguel Angel Moreles Vázquez has been a researcher at CIMAT for the past 15 years. He obtained his PhD in Mathematics in 1995 at the University of Minnesota. He is a specialist in Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis and Functional Analysis. He has published 20 papers on these subjects. Dr. Moreles has been able to work successfully with multidisciplinary teams, both in academic and industrial circles. He has participated on several RTD projects for companies like CONDUMEX, LAPEM-CFE. In the last years, Dr. Moreles participates in projects on numerical simulation associated to enhanced oil recovery. These projects were requested by PEMEX and are funded from two grants form CONACYT – SENER.

Dr. Arturo Hernández Aguirre received a BSc degree in Electronic Engineering from Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana in 1982, a MSc in Computer Science from Tulane University in 1998, and the PhD in Computer Science also from Tulane University in 2000. He joined the department of Computer Science at the Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas A.C. (Center for Research in mathematics) in 2001, Guanajuato, Mexico. He has published over 100 research papers in journals and conferences, and 15 book chapters in specialized books. He serves in the editorial board of two Springer journals: Computation Optimization and Applications, and Soft-Computing. His overall hindex is 18 and his publications accumulate more than 700 citations. His research interests are: - Genetic algorithms, estimation distribution algorithms, evolutionary computation and in general the analysis and design of stochastic algorithms, and its application to global and constrained optimization of real and integer valued functions. - Multiobjective optimization. - Computer architecture, computer design, FPGAs, evolutionary design of digital and analog circuits (evolvable hardware).
