Welcome to my homepage!

I am Francesca Arici and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the MPI for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig.

I completed my Ph.D. in September 2015 at SISSA, Trieste (IT), under the supervision of Giovanni Landi.

After that I was a post doc at IMAPP Nijmegen (NL) in the group of Walter van Suijlekom, and then a part-time researcher and part-time science relation officer at MPI MiS.

My research interests are in the field of noncommutative geometry and I am interested in its interplay with theoretical physics. At the moment I am investigating lattice gauge theory with operator algebra techniques. I am also interested in index theory and its applications to operator algebras, in particular Cuntz--Pimsner algebras, graph C*-algebras and their K-theory.

A detailed CV can be found here.


September 2018   I have been elected to Deputy Memeber of the Standing Commmitee of EWM.

July 2018   I have been awarded an NWO Veni Grant to study the noncommutative topology of sphere bundles. See the NWO Website.
