The award of full PhD grants goes to five students from developing countries engaged in a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences in a developing country. The 2022 recipients are as follows (listed in alphabetical order):
Ha Tuan Dung is a Vietnamese PhD student at the Vietnam National University of Sciences, nominated by his advisor Professor Thac Dung Nguyen. He plans to work on Hodge-Laplacian theory in curved manifolds and geometric structures of low dimensional manifolds.
Pushpendra Kumar is an Indian PhD student at the National Institute of Technology at Puducherry in India nominated by one of his advisors Professor Hieu Trinh of Deakin University (Australia). He plans to work on Fractional order Dynamical Systems.
Zahra Reshadat is an Iranian PhD student at the Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM) at Theheran (Iran) nominated by her advisor Professor Meysam Nassiri. She plans to work on the product of random matrices from the dynamical points of view.
Victor Amarachi Uzor is a Nigerian PhD student at the University of Kwazulu-Natal, Durban in South Africa nominated by his advisor Professor Oluwatosin Temitope Mewomo. He plans to work on Strong convergence analysis of some inertial iterative algorithms with self-adaptive step size for approximating common solutions of certain optimization and fixed point problems in Banach spaces.
Kavitha Williams William Joseph Raj is an Indian PhD student at Vellore Institute of Technology in India, nominated by her advisor Professor Velusamy Vijayakumar. She plans to work on Fractional derivatives.
