Short CV/Education and training

  • ​Ewa Damek has graduated from University of Wrocław in 1982. Five years later she has received a PhD degree, whereas her habilitation has been completed in 1995. She was honored with the title of a full professor in 2000. Since then, she has successfully supervised 7 PhD students. Between 2002 and 2007 Ewa Damek was a Chairman of the Institute of Mathematics at University of Wrocław.

  • Her most spectacular scientific success was formulation in 1992 of an answer (together with Fulvio Ricci) to the Lichnerowicz conjecture, which originally has been described in 1944. Co-authors defined spaces referred later on by other mathematicians as Damek-Ricci spaces.

  • Currently Ewa Damek is employed by University of Wrocław, where she pursues research in harmonic analysis and probability, being at the same time the head of the Harmonic Analysis Group. 2012-2016 she was a member of the Committee of Mathematics of Polish Academy of Science.
