David Pardo received the B.S. degree in mathematics from the University of the Basque Country, Spain, in 2000, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computational and applied mathematics from The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Tex, USA, in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Then, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Associate at the Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin during the period 2004–2008. During 2008–2010, he worked as a Research Professor and Team Leader of the group "Multiphysics, Inversion, and Petroleum" at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM). Since September 2009, he is a Research Professor at IKERBASQUE, the Basque Foundation for Sciences. Since September 2010, he is also a Research Professor at the University of the Basque Country. He has published over 50 publications and he has given over 100 presentations. His research interests include computational electromagnetics, petroleum-engineering applications (borehole simulations), adaptive finite-element, and discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin methods, multigrid solvers, and multiphysics and inverse problems.
