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 graph real-world complex networks, such as the web graph and on-line social networks (OSNs), pdf 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 Board of Directors of Mprime.
