Inna Entova-Aizenbud

I am a lecturer in Math Department, Ben Gurion University.

I work in Representation Theory; my interests include monoidal categories (particularly Deligne categories), categorical actions, superalgebras, and algebraic combinatorics.

I have completed my graduate studies at MIT, where my advisor was Prof. Pavel Etingof.

Here are my thesis and CV.
