Anthony Bonato


I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Toronto Metropolitan University. My research interest is in graph theory, with applications to real-world complex networks and pursuit-evasion games on graphs such as Cops and Robbers and graph burning. My research is supported by grants from NSERC, and I've won several awards for my research and graduate supervision, as outlined in my CV. Taught courses at six universities, including in Ireland and Cameroon.
