## About Professor Andrew Mathas

**The main problem driving Andrew's research is to understand the representations of the symmetric groups over fields of positive characteristic. This is a difficult subject where many open questions remain.**

My main area of interest and expertise is the representation theory of Coxeter groups, Iwahori-Hecke algebras and Schur algebras. Recently my work has focused on the modular representation theory of the Ariki-Koike algebras and the associated cyclotomic q-Schur algebras. This theory is intimately connected with the representation theory of affine Hecke algebras and quantum groups; there are also ramifications for the representation theory of the symmetric groups and finite reductive groups.
