Staff Profile

Dr Ilke Canakci

Research Associate


I am currently an EPSRC Research Associate at the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics working in the Newcastle Higher Homological Algebra group:

Previously, I held two other EPSRC Research Associate positions at Durham University and Leicester University.


My general areas of interest lie in the intersection of a wide range of areas in pure mathematics and include various topics in Representation theory, Geometry and Combinatorics. More elaborately, I am interested in topics stemming from Cluster Algebra Theory; in particular, topological representation theory and their associated categorifications, geometric and combinatorial aspects of surface cluster algebras, cluster algebras in number theory and cluster algebras of infinite rank.
