Biographical Review

Javier Parcet was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1975, where he obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2003. After three postdoc periods in Texas A&M University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Centre de Recerca Matemática de Barcelona, he joined the ICMAT in 2006, where he is now a faculty member.

Among other distinctions, Professor Parcet was awarded with a Ramón y Cajal Researcher position in 2005, the José Luis Rubio de Francia Prize in 2006 and an ERC Starting Grant Project in 2010 to develop his project Noncommutative Calderón-Zygmund theory, Quantum Probability and Operator Space Geometry.

His main research area is noncommutative harmonic analysis, with connections in quantum probability and operator space theory. His most significant results are the solution —with Professor Marius Junge— of two open problems posed by G. Pisier on the geometry on noncommutative Lp spaces and his recent results on Fourier multipliers / CZO’s in group von Neumann algebras, Kakeya sets of directions and direccional maximal operators.
