Chimere Stanley Anabanti
I began research leading to a PhD in Mathematics in October 2014 under the supervision of Professor Sarah Hart, and earned the PhD in September 2017. My doctoral research revolved around locally maximal productfree sets in finite groups. Before the PhD year, I did an M.Sc in Mathematics at the University of Warwick (2012/2013 session), where I wrote a thesis titled "The Whitehead Algorithm for free groups" under the supervision of Professor Derek Holt, as well as served as an Assistant Lecturer (2013/2014 session) at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Honours Students Supervised
While an Assistant Lecturer at UNN (2013/2014), I supervised two B.Sc students:
1. Agozie, Bethel (Consequences of Schrier's subgroup theorem).
2. Nnyaba, Ukamaka Victoria (Nielsen's approach to the subgroup theorem).
[Ukamaka has completed an M.Sc in Mathematics from AUST, and enrolled for PhD there while Bethel is currently enrolled in the M.Sc programme in Mathematics at UNN.]
