He received the degree of Licenciado en Matemáticas from the University of Buenos Aires (1982) and is a Doctor en Matemática from the University of Córdoba (1989). He is Doctor Honoris Causa of the University Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France (2014).
He is Full Professor at the National University of Córdoba, Researcher of the CONICET (class Superior), Academician of the Academia Nacional de Ciencias (2010) and the Academia Nacional de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas y Naturales (2015) and Honorary Professor of the Eurasian National University “L.N. Gumilev”, Astana, Kazakhstan (2005).
He was President of the Unión Matemática Argentina (2015-2019). He was awarded the Humboldt Fellowship (1992-93). He is Editor of the Journal of Algebra (since 2007) an other scientific journals. He gave an invited conference at the International Congress of Mathematicians (2014). He advised fourteen doctoral thesis; presently he advises two more. One of his former PhD students got the Prize Houssay 2016 and the Prize “Pedro E. Zadunaisky” in Mathematics of the Academia Nacional de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas y Naturales (2011) and gave an invited conference at the International Congress of Mathematicians (2018); another of his former students got Prizes from the Academies Nacional de Ciencias (2017) and Nacional de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas y Naturales (2018).
He published more than 100 articles, with more than 40 coauthors, on Algebra and Lie Theory, in various important journals, including one in the Annals of Mathematics. He was the Editor of 9 Proceedings of mathematical meetings. He organized many conferences; with other colleagues, he created the series of Encuentros Nacionales de Álgebra and Quantum Colloquia; he revitalized the series of Coloquios Latinoamericanos de Álgebra.
His scientific work deals mainly with the classification of Hopf algebras of finite dimension or moderate growth. In articles with with H.-J. Schneider and J. Cuadra, he introduced methods that allow to face the classification questions via the consideration of concrete problems of various kinds. A constant leitmotiv in his work is the consideration of the theory of Hopf algebras as part of Lie theory. In this sense he devoted intense efforts to understand las Nichols algebras, that play a role analogous to that of Lie algebras.
