## Bio

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*.
