Eva Bayer-Fluckiger (born 25 June 1951) is a Swiss mathematician. She is professor at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. She has worked on several topics in topology, algebra and number theory, e.g. on the theory of knots, on lattices, on quadratic forms and on Galois cohomology. Along with Raman Parimala, she proved Serre's conjecture II regarding the Galois cohomology of a simply-connected semisimple algebraic group when such a group is of classical type.[1]

Bayer-Fluckiger attended the University of Geneva, where she obtained her doctorate under supervision of Michel Kervaire in 1978. She was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1983-84.[2]
