I'm a first year PhD student and my research is related to Quiver representation and recently I have been looking at semi- invariant rings in the context of Quiver representation.
Sometimes I feel like nobody cares about this particular topic that I'm working on. I recently attended a conference where many eminent mathematicians from this field of representation theory were present and I felt like nobody really cares about semi-invariant rings for quiver representations. My question is:
- Will this make it difficult for me to find a post- doc position?
- Will it make it difficult for me to do research in the future, because people might not value what I'm doing
One thing that I would like to add is that I find this field and semi-invariant rings for quiver representation interesting and I like studying about it.
