Nicolás Carreño


I am an assistant professor at Departamento de Matemática of the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. I am a member of the Control of PDE and Inverse Problems group, together with Patricio Guzmán, Rodrigo Lecaros and Alberto Mercado.

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.
