Doctor by the Universidad del País Vasco - Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea with the thesis Sobre los errores locales y globales de la integración de ecuaciones diferenciales ordinarias mediante métodos de Runge-kuita explícitos 2007. Supervised by Dr. Ander Murua Uria.

Joseba Makazaga studied the Bsc Degree in Informatics in the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in the period 1984-89. Later he worked in the private industry as programmer-analyst (1989-92) and returned to the university as lecturer in the Computer Engineering Faculty of UPV/EHU. There he continued the training for his doctoral thesis and under the direction of A. Murua he defended his PhD in Donostia in 2007.   Since then, he has been collaborating with several well established researchers in the field of Geometric Numerical Integration (such as E. Hairer, Ph. Chartier, F. Casas, S. Blanes, M.P. Calvo, in addition to his former PhD supervisor) and also in dynamical astronomy (such as Jacques Laskar from the Observatoir de Paris and CNRS). He is member of the department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence and from 1992 to the present. He has been teaching several subjects in the Bsc. in Informatics Engineering: Graph Theory, Computer Graphics, Numerical Computation, Scientific Computing. During 2015-2018, Joseba Makazaga was appointed as Director of the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
