George McNinch is Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at Tufts University, where he currently serves as Associate Chair. McNinch obtained his Ph.D. in 1996 in the Mathematics at 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 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, and in 2016 he was an invited visitor at the Centre Intrafacultaire Bernoulli (EPFL; Lausanne, Switzerland) during the program on Local representation theory and simple groups.
