## Chimere Stanley Anabanti

I began a PhD in Mathematics in October 2014 under the supervision of Professor Sarah Hart, and completed it in September 2017. My doctoral research revolved around locally maximal product-free 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 (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 now enrolled for PhD there while Bethel is currently enrolled in the M.Sc programme in Mathematics at UNN.]
