Victor Aldaya received his M.S. degree in physics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain in 1973 and his Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics from Universidad de Salamanca, Madrid, Spain in 1978. He has developed lecturing activities at the Universities of Salamanca, Valencia, and Granada. In 1982, Aldaya got a permanent (national) position at the university, and in 1986 he got a permanent position as a Scientific Researcher at the National Spanish Research Council. He visited different foreign universities, in particular, the Imperial College of London (1986–1989) where he stayed for two years. At present, he develops his research activities at the Instituto de Astrofísica de AndalucÍa and lecturing activities at the University of Granada (Spain). Dr. Aldaya research interests are centered on fundamental theoretical physics and mathematical physics covering areas like variational calculus in field theory, geometric quantization, group representations, infinite-dimensional Lie groups, mathematical structure of gauge theories (in particular, massive Yang-Mills and gravity theories), with special emphasis on group approach to quantization. He is the author or coauthor of more than 100 research papers in reputable international journals. Aldaya has been the adviser of many Ph.D. students, developing at present research and lecturing activities in different Universities. He is also a regular referee of the Journal of Physics A, Classical and Quantum Gravity, Annals of Physics, and many others.
