Dr. 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. Dr. Drupieski was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure in 2016, and he was promoted to the rank of Professor in 2023. ​Prior to graduate school, Dr. Drupieski majored in Mathematics and Physics at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD.

Dr. Drupieski'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.
