Jorge Urrutia Galicia is a Mexican mathematician and computer scientist in the Institute of Mathematics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).[1] His research primarily concerns discrete and computational geometry.

Urrutia earned his Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo in 1980, under the supervision of Ronald C. Read.[2] He worked for many years at the University of Ottawa before moving to UNAM in 1999.[3] With Jörg-Rüdiger Sack in 1991, he was founding co-editor-in-chief of the academic journal Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications.[4]

The Mexican Conference on Discrete Mathematics and Computational Geometry, held in 2013 in Oaxaca, was dedicated to Urrutia in honor of his 60th birthday.[5]
