Maria Soledad Aronna's Personal Page

I am an Assistant Professor at the Escola de Matemática Aplicada (EMAp/FGV ) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

My research interests are the following:

Optimal Control: My research in this field focuses mainly on second order optimality conditions, convergence of associated numerical algorithms and impulsive problems.

Mathematical Epidemiology: In this area I investigate, in particular, problems related to vector-borne diseases as dengue fever and Zika virus. I apply, in general, tools arising from Dynamical Systems Theory as monotone systems, Lyapunov functions, stability criteria, etc.
