Dolors Herbera

Associate professor at UAB
Research area: Algebra

PhD in Mathematics obtained at UAB (1985)


I have been working at the UAB since october 1985 when I entered the Mathematics Department as a PhD student. Right now I have a position of Catedratica de Escuela Universitaria (Associated Professor) since 1996.
I was a Fulbright postdoc fellow at the Mathematics Departmet at Rutgers University (USA) from January 1993 to September 1994.
I was visiting professor at the Mathematics department of the Università di Padova the course 2004-2005.
I spent my sabbatical year 2010-2011 visiting at the mathematics departments at NTNU (Trondheim, Norway) and at Universität Bielefeld (Germany).
I have been visiting the Centre de Recerca Matemática (CRM, Barcelona) in
-first semester of 2006-2007 as a coordinator and participant of the Research Programme “Continuous and discrete methods in Ring Theory”
-Second semester of 2014-2015 as a coordinator and participant of the Research Programme “Interactions between Representation Theory, Algebraic Topology and Commutative Algebra” (IRTATCA) that had more than 70 researchers from all over the world.
I have been giving invited talks on my research in universities in USA, Mexico, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Germany, Norway, India, Turkey,… and also I have made invited talks in conferences all over the world.
I have organized quite a number of scientific events. Right now I am co-organizing the special session on Associative Rings and Algebras at the First Joing Meeting Brazil-Spain in Mathematics (Fortaleza, Brazil December 7-10, 2015)
I am editor of the International Electonic Journal of Algebra (IEJA)
