Dr. Eduardo R. Mendoza is recognized for his significant scientific achievements in mathematics and systems biology and demonstrated dedication to the development of science in the Philippines. His PhD dissertation led to significant advances in several fields, such as the Cuspidal Cohomology Problem and Serre‘s Modularity Conjecture for quadratic number fields, which have been extensively cited in over 50 papers in leading math journals and 4 books. His main constrct has been called the “Mendoza complex”.
