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 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.

Editorial Position. I serve on the editorial board of De Gruyter Open Mathematics (formerly called Central European Journal of Mathematics) as a Language Editor: June 2016--date.

Selected Talks


Students Supervised

  • While an Assistant Lecturer at UNN (2013/2014), I supervised two students' project:
  1. Agozie, Bethel (Consequences of Schrier's subgroup theorem).
  2. Nnyaba, Ukamaka Victoria (Nielsen's approach to the subgroup theorem).
    [Ukamaka completed an M.Sc in Mathematics from AUST, and is enrolled for PhD there while Bethel is currently enrolled in the M.Sc programme in Mathematics at UNN.]
  • While a Lecturer at UNN (2017/2018), I supervised two students' project:
  1. Nworie, Emmanuel (Some recent works on finite filled groups).
  2. Okanya, Christopher (Classification of finite groups of small order).
    [Emmanuel came out as the best graduating student in the Department of Mathematics as well as the best graduating student in the Faculty of Physical Sciences at UNN. He made a CGPA of 4.92 out of 5.00. He also won a Gold Medal in the 2018 National Mathematics Competition for University Students (NAMCUS), and got the overall second position in the competition. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a prospective postgraduate student in Mathematics to sponsor from Nigeria.]
