Andrés Viña was born in Santa Ana de Maza, Spain, in 1949. He received a degree in mathematics from the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain, in 1971 and a Ph.D. degree from the same University. Viña received also a degree in physics from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain in 1988. From 1971 to 1974, he was Fellow at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela. From 1975 to 1990, he taught mathematics at a secondary school. From 1991 to 1995, he served as an Assistant Professor of mechanics at Universidad de Oviedo. Since 1995, he serves as an Associate Professor of mathematical method of physics at Universidad de Oviedo. He is mainly interested in symplectic geometry, especially in the Hamiltonian groups of symplectic manifolds and its topological invariants. He is also interested in relations between representations of a group and the coadjoint orbits of this group. He is an Active Member of the HEPTH Theory Group at University of Oviedo, where he delivers talks about themes of mathematical physics.
