One additional researcher who has been awarded a prestigious Banting Fellowship has decided to pursue his research program at York.
Cesar 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.”
Ceballos joins two additional researchers who have recently been awarded a prestigious Banting Fellowship and have decided to pursue their research programs at York, including Elspeth Van Veeren and Emily Flynn-Jones.
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. Seventy fellowships are awarded yearly through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences & Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council of Canada.
