The Department of Mathematics is pleased to announce that Professor David Conlon from Oxford University is the recipient of this year’s Kalman Visiting Fellowship. 

Professor Conlon will be hosted by Dr Jeroen Schillewaert and intends to visit us during August and September of 2018. 

Professor Conlon's principal research interests are in combinatorics and number theory, particularly Ramsey theory, extremal graph theory, additive combinatorics, pseudorandomness and random graphs.

Dr Schillewaert says, "I am delighted that Professor David Conlon, a world leader in combinatorics, will join us for several weeks. His research talks and personal interactions will greatly benefit the department, in particular our doctoral students."

Professor Conlon welcomes the opportunity to visit the University of Auckland’s Department of Mathematics.

"It means a great deal to me to be awarded the Kalman Fellowship and I can't wait to visit Auckland and experience the life of both the University and the city."

Funded generously by the Margaret and John Kalman Charitable Trust, the Kalman Visiting Fellowship supports an extended research visit by a "rising star" in mathematical sciences to the University of Auckland.

Previous recipients are Dr Tim Burness (University of Bristol), Professor Jiawang Nie (University of California, San Diego), and Dr Andy Hammerlindl (Monash University). 

We would like to thank the Margaret and John Kalman Charitable Trust for generously supporting this Fellowship.
