Nicolás Carreño


I am an assistant professor at Departamento de Matemática of the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. Until recently, I was a postdoc under the supervision of Eduardo Cerpa.

My research interests are controllability problems of partial differential equations. In particular, controllability of parabolic systems with a reduced number of controls and the study of the cost of null controllability in limit cases.

In October 2014, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie. My thesis advisor was Sergio Guerrero.

Here is my CV.
