Katerina Hristova

I am a second 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'm interested in investigating the category of smooth representations of locally compact totally disconnected topologicial groups, Kac-Moody groups and their associated buildings.


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.

2015/2016 academic year: I was the TA for Algebra I, Tensors, spinors and rotations and Ring theory as well as the supervisor to two groups of second year maths students.
