The grant supports five months of research at the University of Miami, which is home of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of the Americas (IMSA). This project fits perfectly with the three-pronged mission of IMSA:

1. To foster and facilitate research in mathematics and its applications across the Americas.
2. To disseminate advances from this research broadly and interactively to the global mathematical and scientific communities.
3. To build national and international capacity in the mathematical science workforce by providing targeted educational opportunities at key points in human intellectual development from middle school through postdoctoral training.

Application deadline for AY 2024-25 is 5 December, 2023

All dates and times are fixed and alternative options cannot be offered.
