Professor Jelena Grbic is a Professor of Mathematics within The School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton.
Jelena's research interests focus on modern homotopy theory (with an emphasis on unstable homotopy theory) and its applications in Topology, Algebra and Geometry in a broad sense.
In particular, her research is centred on decompositions and exponent problems in homotopy theory, homotopy aspects of Toric Topology, Hopf algebras, and on more geometric problems related to cobordisms and string topology.
Jelena's teaching expertise spans pure mathematics where she teaches on modules covering algebraic toology and homotopy theory.
