Marina Logares Jiménez (born 1976, Madrid) is a Spanish mathematician and LGBT+ activist. She was named one of the 50 most influential LGBT+ people in Spain in 2019.


Logares was awarded her PhD in Mathematics in 2006 from the Autonomous University of Madrid.[1][2] She later worked at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn, the University of Oxford, the University of Porto and the University of Plymouth.[1][2][3] She is currently a visiting professor at the Complutense University of Madrid.[2] Logares studies within the field of geometry. Her areas of interest in research focus on algebraic and complex geometry and mathematical physics. She particularly studies Yang–Mills equations, and their derivatives, Hitchin equations.[4]

In 2018 she published the book Las geometrías y otras revoluciones (Geometry and other revolutions),[5] which describes the history of the field of geometry.[3]


Logares stands out for her social commitment, especially her role in the fight for the rights of the LGBT community and its inclusiveness in science. She identifies as a lesbian.[6][3] At the university of Plymouth, Logares was the co-chair of the LGBT co-forum.[3][7] In 2019 she was included in a list of the 50 most influential LGBT people in Spain by newspaper El Mundo.[7][8] In 2020 she was the keynote speaker the LGBT STEMinar in Birmingham, UK.[9]


Logares is a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo.[1][3]
