## Bio

George McNinch is Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Tufts University. McNinch obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1996 from the University of Oregon. Subsequently, he was on the faculty in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame, before joining the Tufts faculty in 2003.

The focus of McNinch’s mathematical research is algebra --
specifically, the study of the structure and representations of
linear algebraic
groups, and
especially of reductive algebraic
groups. Recently, he
was an invited speaker at the workshop on *Algebraic Groups, Lie
Algebras and their
Representations* held in
November 2018 at the Max Planck
Institute (Bonn, Germany) to celebrate
the 70th birthday of Jens Carsten
Jantzen. Before
that, he gave a lecture at the workshop Groupes algébriques et
géométrisation du programme de
Langlands at the
École Normale Superieure, Lyon (France) in 2018, and at the Workshop
on pseudo-reductive
groups at
Newcastle University (UK) in 2017.
