About Professor Anthony Henderson

Professor Anthony Henderson's research is in representation theory and related areas of combinatorics and geometry.

Prof Henderson is particularly interested in the closures of nilpotent orbits and other algebraic varieties analogous or related to them, such as orbit closures in Hilbert nullcones, Nakajima quiver varieties, and certain subvarieties of affine Grassmannians. These varieties are important in various geometric constructions of representations. A further strand of his research is in more combinatorial areas related to hyperplane arrangements and their compactifications. Prof Henderson's interest has been in computing the characters of the representations of symmetric groups and wreath products on the cohomology of various varieties on which they act.

Prof Henderson is a researcher in the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
