Cirici, Joana

After defending my PhD in 2012 at Universitat de Barcelona, I held several postdoctoral positions in Berlin, Münster and Barcelona, including a Marie Curie Fellowship at FU-Berlin and a research position as PI from the German Research Foundation at WWU-Münster. In 2019, I became Serra Húnter Lecturer at Universitat de Barcelona. Since June 2021, I am Vice-Dean of Research of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at UB. I am PI of the project "Homotopical methods in geometry", funded by the Spanish State Research Agency and a member of the French ANR project “Higher Algebra, Geometry, and Topology”.


Algebraic Topology and its interactions with Algebraic Geometry and Complex Geometry

Topology of algebraic varieties and mixed Hodge theory;
Multiplicative structures in homotopical algebra and cohomological operations;
Rational and p-adic homotopy theory, operads and formality;
Topology of complex and almost complex manifolds.
