Prof. Dr. Chenyang Xu
After graduating from Beijing University in 2004, Chenyang Xu received his doctorate at Princeton University in 2008.
From 2008 to 2011 he held fellowships and appointments in the USA, the last of which as assistant professor at the university of Utah.
He returned to China in 2011 and after two years as Research Fellow at the Beijing International Center of Mathematical Research he now holds the position of professor at that institute.
His awards include amongst others the Clay Liftoff Fellowship, Viterbi Endowed Postdoctoral Scholarship, and National Award for Youth in Science and Technology in 2013.

Rational Points, Rational Curves and Automorphisms of Special Varieties
My FRIAS Fellowship will allow me to continue my study of various aspects of higher dimension birational geometry.
