Niamh Farrell

Biography

Niamh started her PhD at City with Professor Radha Kessar in 2013. She has an MSc from Imperial College London and a BA from Trinity College Dublin.

Research Interests

Niamh's research is in the representations of finite groups. For her PhD she is looking at the Morita equivalence classes of Frobenius twists of the blocks of group algebras of quasi-simple finite groups.
