Chun-Ju (CJ) Lai

(Starting Sep 1st, 2020, I'll join the Institute of Mathematics, Academia Sinica as an assistant research fellow.)

I joined the University of Georgia as a Limited Term Assistant Professor (LTAP) since August 2017, with Daniel Nakano being my research mentor.

I was a Visiting Postdoc Fellow at the Max-Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, Germany, from 2016 - 2017. I obtained my PhD in 2016 at the University of Virginia under supervision of Weiqiang Wang. 

My research interests include affine Hecke algebras, quantum groups, quantum symmetric pairs, modular representation theory, quiver varieties, geometric representation theory, categorifications, and algebraic combinatorics.

I am organizing the algebra seminar at UGa.
