Christopher Drupieski earned his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Virginia in 2009. He then spent three years as a VIGRE Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Georgia before joining the faculty at DePaul University in 2012. Prior to graduate school, Christopher majored in Mathematics and Physics at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD.

Christopher's research interests focus on the representation theory and cohomology of algebraic groups, Lie algebras, Lie superalgebras, finite (super)group schemes, and related mathematical structures.
