#### About Manuel del Pino

Manuel del Pino currently holds the position of Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath, UK. In 2018, he was honored with a Royal Society Research Professorship, the Society’s top research award, allowing exceptional scientists to focus on research by relieving them of teaching and administrative duties.

Previously, Professor del Pino worked at the Universidad de Chile, and has made significant contributions to the theory of asymptotic patterns in nonlinear partial differential equations. He is also a member of the Chilean Academy of Science and was the recipient of Chile’s National Prize of Science in 2013.

Research interests:

- Analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations
- Blow-up patterns in nonlinear evolution problems
- Singular limits in variational problems with loss of compactness

Manuel’s work deals with the analysis of singularity formation in non-linear partial differential equations. Of central interest is the construction of families of solutions with blow-up patterns in evolution problems in geometry, fluid dynamics and chemotaxis. A closely connected topic in his research is the analysis of singular limits in variational problems with loss of compactness.
