Natàlia Castellana

Associate professor at UAB
Research area: Topology

PhD in Mathematics obtained at UAB


I was a EPSRC postdoc, Aberdeen University, from 2000 and 2001; and a visiting professor in Purdue University in 2005.
I have participated in several research porgrammes: Mittag-Leffler Insitute (2006), Bernouilli Centre (2005), Max-Planck Institut fur Mathematik (2001) and several workshops at Matematisches Forschunginstitut Oberwolfach.
Coordinator of the Spanish Topology Netwok (2012).
PI of research projects “MTM2010-20692: Análisis local en grupos y espacios topológicos” and “MTM2013-42293-P: Teoría de homotopía de espacios clasificadores y espacios de funciones”.
