Position Full Professor at UAB
Research interests Geometry
Area Algebra, Geometry and Topology
Porti, Joan

Professor since 2007 at UAB. Associate professor at UAB from 1998 to 2007 and «chargé de recherches» from 1995 to 1998 at CNRS, France.
In 2008 I received the ICREA Academia Prize.
My main scientific achievment perhaps is to complete the proof of the orbifold theorem , in collaboration with M Boileau and B Leeb, published in 2005.

Other Research Interests

Geometric structures on manifolds, low dimensional topology, varieties of representations


Currently I am just memberof the project PGC2018-095998-B-I00: Invariantes locales y globales ne geometría. Responsible: Gil Solanes
