Florent Balacheff

Lecturer at UAB
Research area: Geometry

PhD in Mathematics obtained at University of Montpellier (2005)


Former student of the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan in France, I got my PhD in 2005 from the University of Montpellier. After 3 years of postdoctoral positions in Switzerland, I became an associate professor (maître de conférences) at the University of Lille.

In 2018 I was awarded a grant Ramon y Cajal and joined the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
