James Ross Whitley

I am a PhD student at the University of Birmingham in the School of Mathematics. I was previously studying under Dr. Anton Evseev, and now under Dr. Simon Goodwin as part of the Algebra group here. My research is on the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras, with a current focus on the symmetric group and related Hecke algebras.


I graduated from the University of Warwick in 2015 with a MMath (Hons), and did my 4th Year Project under Dr. Bruce Westbury on "6j-Symbols of Uq(sln(C))".


My office is Room 315 in the Watson Building and I can be contacted by email at:
