Dr Maria Carmen Reguera, Birmingham Fellow in the School of Mathematics is among 13 top scientists to receive a funding boost for her research from the VINNOVA programme, Mobility for Growth.
The Vinnmer Marie Curie project, Dyadic Harmonic Analysis and Weighted Theory in Bergman Spaces, led by Dr Reguera in collaboration with Professor Aleman and Professor Pott from Lund University was selected for funding last month.
The research project aims to attack and solve long-standing problems in classical analysis using an interdisciplinary approach, which draws on expertise in operator theory and complex analysis from the group at Lund University and Birmingham’s strengths in harmonic analysis. Dr Reguera’s expertise lies in dyadic harmonic analysis, and recently, she has worked at the intersection of this discipline with areas such as complex analysis, operator theory and geometric analysis.
Launched by VINNOVA, the Swedish Government Agency for Innovation Systems, Mobility for Growth is designed to support career development for individuals through mobility and has a funding mechanism for incoming and outgoing transnational mobility for experienced researchers promoting active international collaborations between involved organisations. The programme duration is from 2012 to 2017 with an overall budget of EUR 35 million, of which EUR 10 million is co-funding from Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (European Commission).
Dr Reguera said:
I am delighted to learn that this project has received recognition from VINNOVA. The Mobility for Growth initiative is important to developing international research collaborations and I expect this project to open up new avenues of research and be the basis for a continued and strong collaboration between the two analysis groups at the University of Birmingham and at Lund University.
