Dr. Pevtsova’s research is in algebra and representation theory, and in particular, geometric aspects of representation theory of algebraic and finite groups, representation theory and cohomology of Lie algebras, Hopf algebras, Quantum groups, Supergroup schemes, and Triangular geometry.

Dr. Pevtsova has received many awards for her research, and for her teaching and mathematical outreach in her community. In 2017, she became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society for her contributions to modular representation theory. In 2018, she received the Distinguished Teaching Award from the Pacific Northwest Section of the Mathematical Association of America, and the Education Prize from the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences for her major role in encouraging activities that enhance public awareness and appreciation of mathematics.

Dr. Pevtsova will deliver an undergraduate lecture appropriate for a general audience on Wednesday, April 13, at 3pm in 105 Fenton Hall. The title of this talk is Math Outreach: local, global, and interconnected
