# The Chair

Professor Ellen Henke holds the chair of Algebra with a focus on group theory at the Institute for Algebra since August 2020. She previously worked as a senior lecturer at the University of Aberdeen and also carried out research at the universities in Copenhagen and Birmingham.

Her research area is finite group theory and its applications. In particular, she is interested in the structure theory of finite groups with respect to a prime number, which is generalized in the study of saturated fusion systems. This is also related to parts of homotopy theory, cohomology theory and modular representation theory of finite groups.
