Enrique Ramiro Pujals is a Brazilian mathematician known for his contributions to the understanding of dynamical systems.[2][3] Since fall of 2018, he has been a professor at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York.[4]


After earning an undergraduate degree in mathematics at the University of Buenos Aires in 1992, he became a Ph.D. student at the Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada, where he was a student of Jacob Palis, completing his Ph.D. in 1996.[5] He was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2000.[6] Before moving to CUNY in 2018, he was a faculty member at IMPA since 2003.[7]


He was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Beijing 2002.[8][9] Won the ICTP Ramanujan Prize (2008), UMALCA Prize in Mathematics (2004)[10], TWAS Prize in Mathematics[11] (2009), is a member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences [12] and receive the Brazilian National Order of Scientific Merit in 2013 [13].
