Francesca Faraci is an associate professor at the Departiment of Mathematics and Informatics since 2014. She teaches in the Industrial Engineering degree course.  Her research activities are focused on non linear Analysis with applications on Partial Differential Equations. 

Francesca Faraci got the degree in Mathematics, at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Catania in 1999. She got the title of Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics in 2004. After some post doctoral fellowships, she got a permanent position as a researcher in 2008. Since 2014 she is an associate professor at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences. She has been invited speakers in several universities. In 2012 she has been “rapporteur” e “panelist” of the “National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation 2007-2013, PN II”- Mathematics & Informatics Panel for PCE/TE/PD Grants del Romanian National Research Council, Bucarest (Romania). Member of the organizing commettee of the "I Corso Intensivo di Calcolo delle Variazioni” held in Catania in 2014 (Speakers : Alessio Figalli, University of Texas at Austin, Susanna Terracini,  University of Torino). She is member of the scientific board of the PhD program in Computer Sciences. Responsible for Erasmus agreement with the University of Babes Bolyai of Cluj-Napoca (Romania) and National Technical University of Athens (Greece).

The research activity deals mainly with the problem of finding multiple solutions for non linear problems. Following a variational approach, she combines some topological results with classical theorems from the critical points theory in order to prove the existence of multiple solutions for quasilinear elliptic equations with Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions on bounded or unbounded domains, for differential inclusions or problems with singularities or discontinuous nonlinearities.

Francesca Faraci takes part to the activisties of the "Liceo Matematico", place of Catania.
