Dr. Calin Chindris’ research interests are primarily in the representation theory of algebras. He is most interested in problems in representation theory which are best understood within the general framework of invariant theory. A common theme throughout Calin’s research has been to use objects and methods from invariant theory to provide a more geometric framework for better understanding and parameterizing large classes of modules of finite-dimensional algebras.

Since coming to the University of Missouri, Calin’s work has been supported by NSA and NSF. During his graduate career, Calin was the recipient of the Sumner Myers Award for best Ph.D. Thesis in Mathematics and the Wirt and Mary Cornwell Prize in Mathematics at the University of Michigan.
