Dr Julius Ross has been awarded a Career Acceleration Fellowship by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

Dr Ross, who is currently Knox-Shaw Fellow and Taylor Lecturer in Mathematics at Sidney Sussex, will use his award to research the 'Links between algebraic geometry and complex analysis'. His research will be based in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics and will examine notions of curvature in high dimensional geometry, in particular what it means for a geometric object to have a 'best shape'.

The awards, which last for five years, allow academics to develop pioneering research without teaching or administrative commitments.
