Vanessa Miemietz

I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics in the School of Mathematics at the University of East Anglia.


Unless otherwise specified, the pure mathematics seminar at UEA takes place on Mondays at 14:00.

We are currently having a study group on symplectic reflection algebras, which meets Wednesdays 4-5pm in S3.05.

In the academic year 2016-2017, we had a study group on differential geometry. In the autumn of 2015, we had a study group on Hall algebras. In the academic year 2014-2015, we had a study group on algebraic groups. In the academic year 2013-2014, we had two study groups: one in homological algebra and one in geometry in representation theory.


My research interests are in the area of representation theory, in particular in the area of 2-representation theory and categorification, as well as homological aspects and the structure of representation categories. If you are interested in doing a postdoc with me, please email me to discuss sources of funding.
