Congratulations to David Jordan who has been awarded a five year ERC Starting Grant. David is the second of our Chancellor's Fellows to be awarded this prestigious grant and takes the total of ERC grants in the School to four.
David's grant is one of only two additional awards in mathematics announced in March 2015. We have now been awarded two of the 15 grants made by the Mathematics Panel with only one other grant being awarded to a UK based researcher.
David will be working on 'The Quantum Geometric Langlands Topological Field Theory'. There will also be two postdocs and one PhD student on the grant.
