Department of Mathematics and Statistics Assistant Professor Jonathan Beardsley has been awarded a Simons Foundation Collaboration Grant for Mathematicians for his project "Higher Categorical Structure in Algebraic Topology, Geometry and Arithmetic.” The $42,000 grant begins in September 2021 and will help support Dr. Beardsley's collaboration, travel, and research for up to five years.
The Simons Foundation’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences division invites applications for Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians to stimulate collaboration in the field primarily through the funding of travel and related expenditures.
The goal of the program is to substantially increase collaborative contacts between accomplished, active mathematicians in the United States who do not otherwise have access to funding that could provide support for travel and visitors.
Awards are based on the quality and significance of the applicant’s previous research and on the likely impact the collaboration grant will have on future research, both for the applicant and the applicant’s graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows. Other criteria include publication in high-quality journals, the applicant’s current and recent Ph.D. students and the applicant’s travel goals and general research activity.
