Dr. Anton Mellit (University of Vienna) awarded ERC Consolidator Grant

Dr. Anton Mellit, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna, was awarded one of this year’s ERC Consolidator Grants for his project “Refined invariants in combinatorics, low- dimensional topology and geometry of moduli spaces“.

Dr. Anton Mellit has got Bachelor and Master in Applied Mathematics from The National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” (NTUU “KPI”). After completing his PhD at the University of Bonn in 2008 he had several postdoc positions in Bonn, Cologne, Trieste and Klosterneuburg before joining the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna. His interests include algebraic and enumerative geometry, and connections with representation theory, combinatorics and number theory.

Moreover, in this year’s round Dr. Tetyana Milojevic was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant in this year’s selection round for her project Biogenicity of Martian Materials: critical assessment of biosignatures based on chemolithoautotrophic interactions“. Furthermore, Dr. Pavel Mykhailiuk was awarded his ERC Consolidator Grant for his project “BENOVELTY – Saturated bioisosteres of benzene and their application in drug design”, highlighted in the ERC Consolidator Grant project examples 2020, which is the first ERC grant to be hosted by Ukraine.
