Personal Profile of Federico Ardila

Federico Ardila received his Ph.D. in 2003 from MIT and since 2005 he is a Professor at San Francisco State University and the Universidad de Los Andes in his native Colombia. He studies objects in algebra, geometry, topology, and applications by understanding their underlying combinatorial structure; he has written 50 papers in various fields. He serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Combinatorial Theory, Ser. A and has been an invited plenary speaker at the national meetings of the American, Colombian, and Mexican Math Societies, the Pacific Rim Math Congress, the Latin American Math Congress, and the FPSAC International Conference. He is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the Premio Nacional de Ciencia de Colombia. Federico is strongly committed to helping build an increasingly equitable and diverse community of mathematicians. With that goal, he founded and directs the SFSU-Colombia Combinatorics Community, he hosts over 200 hours of graduate combinatorics lectures on YouTube, and he co-directs the MSRI-UP undergraduate research program. Federico has advised more than 40 thesis students, including 16 women and 30 members of underrepresented groups.
