Fernando Charro



I'm original from Madrid, Spain. I studied at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, where I obtained a B.S. degree in mathematics in 2003, M.S. in 2005 and Ph.D. in mathematics in 2009.

Then, I spent 4 years at The University of Texas at Austin (USA), first as a Fulbright visiting scholar and then as a lecturer. Afterwards, I returned to Spain with a Juan de la Cierva three-year term position at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya in Barcelona. 

I spent the fall 2017 at the University of Coimbra (Portugal) and the spring 2018 at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain), before arriving to WSU for the fall semester, 2018.
