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.
