Homepage of Eleonore Faber
Starting December 2023, I am a Professor at the University of Graz .
I am a CoI on the EPSRC programme grant Combinatorial Representation Theory: Discovering the Interfaces of Algebra with Geometry and Topology, 20222027, at the University of Leeds . I spent spring 2024 at MSRI/SLMath for the program Commutative Algebra .
Before coming to Graz, I was at the University of Leeds (Professor 2023, Marie Curie Fellow 20182020, University Academic Fellow 20172022). Even before, I was a Post Doc Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and 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 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 .
Research interests
commutative algebra, (noncommutative) algebraic geometry, representation theory, singularity theory, homological algebra, cluster algebras
I am the local Leeds organizer for the GlasgowLiverpoolEdinburghNewcastle (GLEN) algebraic geometry seminar. The main organizer is Johan Martens .
Leeds Algebra Seminar
20172022 I was the organizer of the Algebra Seminar at the University of Leeds. The seminar is now organized by Francesca Fedele and Emine Yildirim and the seminar page is here.
20202024 I was also an organizer of the
FD seminar: Online seminar on representation theory of finite dimensional algebras together with Gustavo Jasso (Lund), Ryan Kinser (Iowa), Julian Külshammer (Uppsala), Rosanna Laking (Verona), Alexandra Zvonareva (Prague).
Teaching
In 2023/24 I am teaching Math3071/5071M Groups and Symmetry/Groups and Symmetry and Galois Theory in semester 1.
For previous teaching see here .
