Jesús M. González-Miranda
Jesús M. González-Miranda obtained his M.S. degree in sciences in 1977 and his Ph.D. degree in physical sciences in 1982, both from the University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain. Since April 1987, he works as an Associate Professor in the Department of Fundamental Physics of the University of Barcelona. His research interest has evolved along time. From 1977 to 1985, he worked in liquid state physics studying structural and diffusive properties of liquid metals by means of molecular dynamics simulations. From 1986 to 1994, González-Miranda applied Monte Carlo simulations to the study of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, with focus on reaction-diffusion systems and relaxation phenomena. Since 1995, his interest has shifted to the field of nonlinear dynamics and chaos, where he has focused on (i) chaotic phenomena in the life sciences, (ii) applied bifurcation theory, and (iii) the dynamics of coupled and driven chaotic oscillators. He is the author of the book Synchronization and Control of Chaos published in 2004 by the Imperial College Press. He serves regularly as a referee for several journals of physics and of nonlinear dynamics and chaos. González-Miranda also serves as a Reviewer for Mathematical Reviews. His role as a university professor includes teaching courses on classical mechanics and physics for the life sciences.
