Jorge Milhazes Freitas, Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade do Porto
Jorge Milhazes Freitas is an associate professor at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto, where he completed in 2006 his PhD in Mathematics. He works on the now-flourishing field of Extreme Value Theory for Dynamical Systems, comprising the statistical study of rare events for chaotic systems, with applications to meteorological models. He is an associate editor of two international journals. He was the director of CMUP, the research centre of Mathematics of the University of Porto, between 2017 and 2021, vice-president of the International Centre of Mathematics between 2016 and 2020 and vice-president of the Portuguese Mathematical Society, between 2020 and 2022. He is a corresponding member of the Lisbon Academy of Sciences.
