## Carolina Vallejo Rodríguez

I am a Rita Levi Montalcini researcher (*ricercatrice tipo B*) at the University of Florence (UNIFI),
where I work as a member of the Algebra group. I am also a member of the GNSAGA of the Istituto di Alta Matematica "Francesco Severi" (INdaM).

My main interest are the so-called *Counting Conjectures*, which fit into the class of
global/local problems in Group Representation Theory.

Between April 2019 and June 2021 I was an assistant professor in Madrid, first at at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and later at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM).
Prior to that, I have held different postdoc positions. I was a Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral researcher at the UAM,
a Severo Ochoa fellow at the Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas (ICMAT)
and a postdoc at the Simons Laufer Mathematical Science Institute (now SLMath, formerly MSRI)
associated with the research program Group Representation Theory and
Applications.

I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Valencia,
where I worked under the supervision of Gabriel Navarro.
The main goal of my Ph.D. thesis was
to find explicit bijections between character sets, so that fields of values of characters were preserved.

My research is currently funded by the Rita Levi-Montalcini Programme for Young Reseachers (Ministero
dell'Università
e della Ricerca di Italia). Previously, I was the PI of the Spanish I+D+i project "COCO" (Counting Conjectures, PID2020-118193GA-I00).
