Congratulations to Louise Sutton, Heilbronn Fellow in Pure Mathematics at the University of Manchester, who has accepted a postdoctoral scholar position at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST), Okinawa, Japan, starting this summer.  She will be part of the Representation Theory and Algebraic Combinatorics research group, headed by Liron Speyer. 

Before arriving at the Heilbronn Institute in October 2019 Louise was a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore, part of the working group of Kai Meng Tan.  Her current research interests are in representation theory of symmetric groups, Iwahori–Hecke algebras and Khovanov–Lauda–Rouquier algebras.  Louise completed her PhD at Queen Mary University of London in 2017 under the supervision of Matt Fayers.  Her thesis was on the graded representations of Khovanov–Lauda–Rouquier algebras.  Last autumn Louise took part in the Junior Research Programme on New Trends in Representation Theory at the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics, Bonn.  This programme gives early career mathematicians the opportunity to carry out collaborative research in Representation Theory.

We wish Louise every success in her new position.
