Interview with Jessica Fintzen

Pure mathematician Jessica Fintzen‘s research interests include representation theory and number theory: two areas of mathematics with a mysterious relationship. In this video profile, Jessica gives us a rundown of p-adic groups and their representations, and how they are connected to the Langlands Program. She also shares her mathematical motivations and even demonstrates a handstand or two.

Jessica is Professor of Mathematics in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Bonn. This interview was recorded at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn in October 2023.
