Elizabeth Wicks

I am a 3rd year Ph.D. student in the Mathematics Department at the University of Washington. My advisor is Professor James Zhang. My research interests include non-commutative algebra, representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras, Frobenius-Perron theory, derived categories, fusion categories, and applications to mathematical physics.


You can check out my recent preprints below.

  1. Elizabeth Wicks. Frobenius-Perron Theory of Modified ADE Bound Quiver Algebras. ArXiv e-prints, January 2018.
  2. Jianmin Chen, Zhibin Gao, Elizabeth Wicks, James Zhang, Xiaohong Zhang, and Hong Zhu. Frobenius-Perron Theory of Endofunctors. ArXiv e-prints, November 2017.


During Winter 2018, I am a Teaching Assistant for Math 126 with Prof. Jonah Ostroff. You can find the course website here.

My office hours are on Wednesdays from 4-5pm.
