    Dr. Bell proposes to work with Prof. Andersson at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, to study VIrus-hoSt Interactions in the BaLtic sEa (VISIBLE). Bacteriophages (bacteria specific viruses) are the most abundant biological entity on the planet, yet we are only beginning to grasp the impact they have upon ecosystem functioning. Using state-of-the-art metagenomics, viromics and bioinformatics, the fellow will uncover novel genomes of virus populations in the Baltic Sea and the prokaryotic hosts they infect. Multiple approaches (abundance, CRISPR spacer matching and homology of auxiliary metabolic genes) will be combined to uncover virus-host dynamics. The metagenomic and viromic dataset has a high temporal resolution spanning a three-year period making it possible to answer fundamental ecological questions: (1) How are the temporal dynamics of viruses related to that of their hosts? (2) Can the co-evolution of viruses and their hosts be detected? (3) Do the function of auxiliary metabolic genes reflect changes in environmental gradients? These questions have major implications for biogeochemical cycling and resource turnover in the marine biosphere, as well as water resource management and predicting ecological responses to climate change. By means of a multidisciplinary approach, the fellow will advance their current research skills in microbial ecology and bioinformatics and gain new skills in virology. The MCSA fellow will join a world-class host institute and world-leading research team in environmental genomics. They will establish new interdisciplinary collaborations with researchers from across Sweden and Europe and develop their communication, management and leadership skills. KTH has been awarded HR Excellence in Research and supports the MCSA Green Charter. KTH provides the ideal environment and infrastructure for the fellow to carry out this research and to develop as a leading independent researcher.

    In the past two decades great progress has been made on the understanding of the remarkable patterns that random tilings of planar domains exhibit. Yet, many models are still out of reach with state-of-the-art techniques and several conjectures remain unsolved. The general purpose of this project is develop new techniques for solving such conjectures and explore new territories. In particular we will look at random tilings models where the randomness is comes from doubly periodic weights on the underlying bipartite graph and their connection to matrix valued special functions. The project includes the following 6 objectives: 1. Develop methods for asymptotic studies of the correlation function for random tilings of large domains, including measures from doubly periodic weights. 2. Derive new asymptotic formulas for matrix-valued orthogonal polynomials by developing a steepest descent method for their Riemann-Hilbert problem. 3. Formulate and investigate natural extensions of Schur processes that include doubly periodic weights that have a special integrable structure, such as the two-periodic Aztec diamond. 4. Study the universality of global fluctuations of the height functions. 5. Prove new Central Limit Theorems fluctuations of linear statistics with for determinantal especially those coming from random tilings. 6. A deeper investigation of the random geometry of the height fluctuations, such as level lines and thick points.
