About me. I’m Anthony Bonato, a mathematician and full professor at Ryerson University in my adopted home town of Toronto, which I adore and wouldn’t trade for any place else—except possibly for a functional TARDIS. I’ve published three academic books and over 100 research papers in the fields of graph theory and network science. I’m the proud supervisor of twenty graduate students over nineteen years spanning three universities. I’m an open and married gay man working in my own small way towards a more inclusive and accepting Canada and world. In my sparse spare time, I write fiction. My first YA science fiction novel is titled PATTERNS, and I’ve posting short stories on Wattpad.
About the blog. The Intrepid Mathematician began in early 2015 as a means for me to write for non-mathematicians about mathematics and mathematicians. Since then, I’ve written about mathematics in popular culture and my own journey as an academic, thinker, and writer. I’m pleased that my little blog about math has over 60K views and on good days I tell myself it is making an impact inside and outside the academy. I also interview thought leaders in mathematics on an irregular basis. Think of me as a part-time Larry King of mathematics, at least without the suspenders.
