Hipolito Treffinger

Short bio

At this moment I held a HCM Postdoc position in the Algebra and Representation theory group at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. My mentor is Prof. Jan Schröer.

Last semester I participated in the Junior Trimester Programme: "New trends in Representation Theory" at the Hausdorff Institute of Mathematics. Prior to this, I was a Research Associate at University of Leicester, a funded by the EPSRC Early Career Fellowship EP/P016294/1: Graphs in Representation Theory granted to Sibylle Schroll. Before that, I did my Ph.D. in the Université de Sherbrooke, under the supervision of Ibrahim Assem and David Smith.

My main research interests revolve around the representation theory of algebras, the stability conditions over their module categories and other related topics, such as cluster algebras, (higher) homological algebra in abelian and triangulated categories, etc.

The easiest way to contact me is via e-mail. Otherwise, you visit me in Bonn or talk to me in one of my scientific trips (highly disrupted due to the Corona pandemic).

In April 2019, I organised together with Fatemeh Mohammadi a workshop for early career researchers on the connections between (tropical) geometry and representation theory. For more information, please go to the following link: https://sites.google.com/view/tgrt2019/home.

You can also find me in Google Scholar and arXiv.
