Juan-Pablo Ortega holds a first degree in Theoretical Physics from the Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), a Masters and a PhD in Mathematics from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a Habilitation degree from the Université de Nice (France). After a postdoc at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland) he became a researcher at the Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France). Before joining the Division of Mathematical Sciences of NTU, he taught mathematics at the Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté (France) and the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland).
Prof. Ortega is a mathematician working on the learning and statistical modeling of dynamic processes like input/output systems, stochastic processes, dynamical and controlled systems, and time series. He is also interested in the applications of these topics to financial econometrics, mathematical finance, physiological signal treatment, and engineering. He has worked extensively in geometric mechanics, where he focuses on stability theory, symmetric systems, and their reduction.
