Luis Acedo received his B.S. degree in fundamental physics from the University of Extremadura, Badajoz, Spain, in 1993, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees (with honors) from the same university in 1995 and 1998, respectively. He has been teaching at the Universities of Extremadura and Salamanca, specifically at the Departments of Physics and Applied Mathematics. Currently, he works as a Research Assistant at the Institute for Multidisciplinary Mathematics within the Polytechnic City of Innovation at the Universitat Politècnica de València. He has been involved in many interdisciplinary projects including statistical physics, cosmology, numerical methods, and the epidemiology of infectious diseases. His current interests are celestial mechanics, numerical analysis of nonlinear equations, and distributed computing in epidemiology. He is currently involved in a project to simulate the propagation of meningitis and other infectious diseases in a large-scale network and the cost effectiveness of vaccination campaigns.
