I have now moved to the University of Manchester.
Click here for my new webpage.
My new email address is miriam dot norris at manchester dot ac dot uk.
I was previously a PhD student at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory and part of the King's College London mathematics department. My supervisors were Fred Diamond and Martin Liebeck. I am interested in Representation Theory and my current research intersects areas of both Number Theory and Algebra. In particular I am looking at lattices inside representations of finite groups. Alongside this I have been looking at modular representations of algebraic groups.
I was one of the organisers of the first ever Women In Number theory and Geometry Winter Retreat (2021) and the 23rd Postgraduate Group Theory Conference (2022). I was also an organiser of the Junior London Algebra Colloquium alongside Kamilla Rekvenyi.
