Emily Roff Awarded JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship

Emily Roff, one of our inaugural Flora Philip Fellows, has been awarded a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship to visit the University of Osaka for eight months in 2023-24. Emily will be working with Professor Masahiko Yoshinaga and others to advance the study of magnitude---a theory which unifies and extends notions of 'size' encountered across many branches of mathematics, connecting ideas from category theory, topology, and combinatorics.
