Dr Amit Hazi


I am a Research Fellow in the Algebra, Geometry, and Integrable Systems group working on diagrammatic and combinatorial methods in representation theory.

Previously I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of York, and from 2019-2022 I was an 1851 Research Fellow at City, University of London. I obtained my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2018.

Research interests

My research lies at the interface between modular representation theory and the diagrammatic Hecke category. At the heart of this is the deep shift from ordinary Kazhdan-Lusztig combinatorics to p-Kazhdan-Lusztig theory, which replaces classical constructions from geometric representation theory with more universal diagrammatic counterparts. I am particularly interested in using these methods to investigate the structure of tilting modules for reductive groups and classical diagram algebras.
