Before joining Baylor University, Dr. Martinez-Finkelshtein was full professor of applied mathematics at the University of Almeria, Spain (1994-2017). Andrei will start teaching full time at Baylor in January 2018, keeping an affiliation with Almeria. He also taught at the Havana University, Cuba (1991-1994) and held visiting positions at several universities in Spain (Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) and the United States (University of South Florida and Vanderbilt University). He is member of several professional societies, and currently, vice-chair of the SIAM Activity Group "Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions". He is also in the editorial board of four journals. He loves gadgets, and his hobbies include listening to music, reading, swimming, and meeting friends.Dr. Martinez-Finkelshtein's research areas include approximation theory, orthogonal polynomials, special functions and applications, Riemann-Hilbert problems and asymptotic analysis, complex and numerical analysis, and mathematical modelling, in particular, in ophthalmology and vision science.
