Susana Gutierrez has published a number of research papers in leading international journals. She delivers invited talks at conferences, workshops and seminars at both local and international level.


  • PhD in Mathematics, University of the Basque Country, 2000
  • MSci in Mathematics, University of the Basque Country, 1998
  • BSc in Mathematics, University of the Basque Country, 1995


Dr. Gutierrez qualified with a MSci in Mathematics from the University of the Basque Country (Spain) in 1998, and received her PhD in Mathematics from the same institution in 2000. In 2007, after holding several postdoctoral positions at different European universities, she joined the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham as a Lecturer.

PhD opportunities



  • Euclidean Harmonic Analysis
  • Partial Differential Equations
  • Singularity Formation Phenomena.


Susana’s research interests lie in a variety of aspects of euclidean harmonic analysis, with particular emphasis on applications to partial differential equations, and in different physical phenomena leading to singularity formation in curve flows.
