Anthony Weston completed his Ph.D. degree in nonlinear functional analysis at Kent State University in 1993 under the direction of Per H. Enflo. Since completing his Ph.D. degree, he has maintained an active program of research in nonlinear analysis and publish articles on a regular basis. He is interested in the analysis of the interplay between linear and nonlinear maps defined on topological or metric linear spaces. This includes the study of isometric embeddings, coarse embeddings, Lipschitz maps, and uniform homeomorphisms. Another aspect of his work has been to blend classical analysis, functional analysis, and graph theory in order to develop a better understanding of some aspects of the nonlinear geometry of finite metric spaces. Prior to his current appointment at Canisius College, he was a Lecturer and then a Senior Lecturer in mathematics at the University of Pretoria in South Africa for five years. More recently, he was appointed as a Visiting Associate Professor of mathematics at the University of New South Wales for one year (2006-2007). It is also the case that he was the Project Leader at the 2011 Cornell University, Summer Mathematics Institute.
