**Congratulations to JULIAN SAHASRABUDHE** ...

Julian Sahasrabudhe, an alumnus of the SFU Department of Mathematics, was recently awarded a prestigious junior research fellowship at the University of Cambridge. In Julian's words, "So I'll be back in Cambridge for the next three years with a really great deal; I will have essentially no obligations other than producing research."

In 2011, Julian was awarded an NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA) to work with Tom Brown and Veselin Jungic on a project entitled "Avoidability in words and van der Waerden's theorem". The outcomes of the project were summarized in the paper Ardal, H.,Brown, T., Jungić, V., and Sahasrabudhe, J., On Additive and Abelian Complexity in Infinite Words, Integers, Electron. J. Combin. Number Theory 12 (2012) A21.

In 2012, Julian was a recipient of the Simon Fraser University Mathematics Undergraduate Prize.

Julian completed his Master's degree at the University of Cambridge and his doctoral work at the University of Memphis under the supervision of Béla Bollobás .
