Thomas Keller, Ph.D.
Office: MCS 557
Thomas Keller has a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Mainz, is a Professor of Mathematics and has interests in finite group theory. His recent research is on upper and lower bounds for the number of conjugacy classes of a finite group. He also has work dealing with the longstanding problem of finding a good bound for the derived length of a finite solvable group in terms of the number of its irreducible complex character degrees. Much of his work is based on studying the orbits that are induced by the action of linear groups on finite vector spaces and often involves combinatorial questions as well as problems on permutation groups which are of independent interest.
