Congratulations Mr Johnny Lim, 2019 Elsevier Young Scientist Award recipient
Congratulations to PhD student, Mr Johnny Lim, who received the 2019 Elsevier Young Scientist Award (and USD$750) for the best student talk at the Chern Institute of Mathematics, Nankai University conference in Tianjin, China.
Mr Lim's talk was titled "Analytic Pontryagin Duality in K-theory", which described the higher Aharonov-Bohm effect of D-branes in Type IIB String theory. The main result of his research is to close a gap in the literature arising through work of John Lott in 1994.
Mr Lim's outstanding result was by unanimous decision by a panel of 4 international judges.
