Dr. Gustavo Bruzual did his undergraduate studies in physics at the Central University of Venezuela and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and obtained his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. After a long career at the Fundación Centro de Investigaciones de Astronomía (CIDA) in Venezuela, of which he was Director for 21 years, he has been a researcher at the UNAM since 2010.

His research on stellar population synthesis is internationally renowned and his work is the main reference in this field. His models of the spectral evolution of galaxies enable the physical properties of these objects, including the stellar mass, to be found.

Dr. Bruzual is a member of several international academies of science, including The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), the Mexican Academy of Science, and in 1991 he was elected associate of the Royal Astronomical Society in recognition of his leadership in astronomy.
