Homepage of Eleonore Faber
I am a University Academic Fellow (UAF) at the University of Leeds . From August 20182020 I was a Marie Curie Fellow, see HERE for a description of my Marie Curie project SINGREP.
Before coming to Leeds, I was a Post Doc Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, working with Prof. Karen Smith .
Even before, I was an FWF ErwinSchroedinger fellow at the University of Toronto where my mentor was Prof. RagnarOlaf Buchweitz .
During the spring semester 2015 I was a a post doctoral fellow at the MittagLeffler Institute (Stockholm, Sweden) for the Program Representation Theory and spring 2013 I spent as a research member at the MSRI in Berkeley for the Program Commutative Algebra . I graduated sub auspiciis praesidentis rei publicae in March 2012 from the University of Vienna , where my thesis advisor was Prof. Herwig Hauser.
Leeds Algebra Seminar
In 202021 I am the organizer of the Algebra Seminar at the University of Leeds.
