Alejandro joined NU as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics the summer of 2016. He is from Tenerife (Spain) where he obtained the PhD degree in Mathematics in 2014 at the University of La Laguna. Later he spent two years in Sweden with a PostDoc position at Uppsala University. His research spans a broad area within Harmonic Analysis and its applications to Partial Differential Equations. In particular he has been interested in singular operators associated with orthogonal systems (Bessel, Hermite, Jacobi, Laguerre, etc) and on the well-posedness (i.e. existence and uniqueness of solutions) of low regularity parabolic boundary value problems. Currently he is working on the initial data problem for the Schrödinger equation.
