Katerina Hristova

I am a third year PhD student under the supervision of Dr Dmitriy Rumynin and Dr Inna Capdeboscq. My current work is on Geometric representation theory. In particular, I am interested in investigating the category of smooth representations of locally compact totally disconnected topologicial groups, Kac-Moody groups and their associated buildings.

I am one of the organisers of the Reading Seminar on Algebraic Groups running in Term 2 this academic year.

2017/2018 academic year: I am one of the TAs for MA249 Algebra II and the TA for MA474 Representation theory.

2016/2017 academic year: I was one of the TAs for Algebra II. In Term 1 I was doing the support classes for Algebra I and Lie groups.
