Professor Sebastian Cioaba has been awarded an Invitational Fellowship for Research in Japan.
Professor Sebastian Cioaba has been awarded an Invitational Fellowship for Research in Japan from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS) under the 1st recruitement. This fellowship provides supports for Professor Sebastian Cioaba to conduct research with Professor Hiroshi Nozaki at Aichi University of Education, Japan on the project “Characterization of combinatorial structures from graph spectrum”. With the support of the JSPS fellowship, the collaboration took place over the period November 22, 2019 to January 20, 2020. Professor Sebastian Cioaba and Professor Hiroshi Nozaki conducted research on problems in spectral graph and hypergraph theory with one research paper being written and several submitted during the aforementioned time period. Professor Cioaba visited several universities in Japan and gave talks at Nagoya Combinatorics Seminar, Tohoku University, Research Institue for Mathematical Sciences at Kyoto University, Hiroshima Institute of Technology and University of Tsukuba.
The JSPS awards invitational fellowships to a select group of excellent researchers from outside Japan to enable scientific research collaboration. Very few are awarded in mathematics; among the 100 fellowships awarded by JSPS under the 1st recruitment in FY2019, only 17 fellowship recipients are mathematicians, and Professor Sebastian Cioaba is one of them.
We congratulate Professor Cioaba on this recognition of excellence in research.
