Anthony Bonato

I am Associate Dean, Students and Programs in the Yeates School of Graduate Studies, and a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Ryerson University. My research interest is in graph theory, with applications to real-world complex networks, such as the web graph, on-line social networks, and graph searching games such as Cops and Robbers. I am an adjunct professor at Dalhousie University, and I am the founding member of the research group Graphs at Ryerson (G@R). My research is supported by grants from NSERC and Ryerson, with past grants from Mprime and MITACS. I won Ryerson Faculty SRC Awards in 2011 and 2009 for excellence in research, and an inaugural YSGS Outstanding Contribution to Graduate Education Award in 2012. I am co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Internet Mathematics, and I am on the Editorial Board of Contributions to Discrete Mathematics. I serve on the NSERC Evaluation Group for Mathematics and Statistics, and have served on the Board of Directors of Mprime and MITACS NCE.

Our PhD in Mathematical Modelling and Methods has been approved to start in September, 2016! I am looking for a motivated doctoral student interested in complex networks, graph theory, and vertex pursuit games. Please contact me if you are interested. Applications will be open soon, and when admissions start, you can apply here.
