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. 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. I serve on the Canadian Mathematical Society Board of Directors as Director-Ontario, the BIRS Board of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, and the NSERC Mathematics and Statistics Liaison Committee.
