Banting Fellow to study geometry of higher-dimensional objectsBy York University Faculty of Science Oct 25, 2013 10:57PM UTC
Cesar Ceballos, awarded a prestigious Banting Fellowship, has decided to pursue his research program at York.
Dr. Ceballos received his PhD in Mathematics and Statistics at Freie Universität Berlin, in Germany. He was also a member of the DFG research training group Methods for Discrete Structures and a member and former student representative of the Berlin Mathematical School. At York University, he will be mentored by Professor Nantel Bergeron in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Faculty of Science.
His project, “Algebraic Structures of High Dimensional Geometric Objects”, presents an innovative idea of using algebraic methods as a tool to analyze the geometry of higher-dimensional objects. He will explore algebraic structures whose elements are geometric objects together with algebraic operations. Through this project, the identification and implementation of new algorithms will contribute to the development of free open source computer software. He will receive $140,000 in research funding over two years.
“We are pleased to have Dr. Cesar Ceballos pursue his research program at York,” said Robert Haché, York’s vice-president research & innovation. “The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program provides an opportunity to bring top talent to join the York University research community.”
The purpose of the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships is to build world-class research capacity by recruiting top-tier Canadian and international postdoctoral researchers at an internationally competitive level of funding.
