I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I am currently the Managing Editor of the journal Publicacions Matemàtiques.

My research interests are in Operator Algebras, Noncommutative Algebra, Semigroup Theory, and the interplay between these.

More specifically, I am interested in the structure of nuclear C*-algebras and their classification, with particular emphasis on the study of invariants such as K-Theory and the Cuntz semigroup. I am also interested in the connections of C*-algebras with Dynamical Systems and with more general algebraic structures, such as Steinberg algebras and Leavitt Path algebras.

I am a member of the Ring Theory Research Group at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (collaborative research grant MTM2017-83487-P), the LIGAT (Laboratory of Interactions between Algebra, Geometry, and Topology), and the BGSMath (Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics).

I am a member of the American Mathematical Society and the Real Sociedad Matemática Española.

Eric Jespers (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) Associative structures associated to set-theoretic solutions of the Yang–Baxter equation Abstract: Let $(X,r)$ be a set-theoretic solution of the YBE, that is $X$ is a set and $r\colon X\times X \to X\times X$ satisfies $$(r \times  \mathrm{id})\circ (\mathrm{id} \times  r)\circ (r \times  \mathrm{id}) = (\mathrm{id} \times  r)\circ (r \times  \mathrm{id})\circ …
