Anthony Bonato


I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Ryerson University. My research interest is in graph theory, with applications to real-world complex networks and graph searching games such as Cops and Robbers. My research is supported by grants from NSERC and Ryerson, with past grants from Mprime and MITACS. I've won several awards for my research and graduate supervision, as outlined in my CV. I am on the Editorial Board of Contributions to Discrete Mathematics, and was Editor-in-Chief of the journal Internet Mathematics. I serve on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Mathematical Society, the BIRS Board of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, and the NSERC Mathematics and Statistics Liaison Committee.
