Dr. Aji serves since August 2007 as a faculty in the department of Mathematics at Tuskegee University. She received her Ph.D. in 2007 and master’s degree in 2003 in mathematics from Auburn University. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University in 1999. Dr. Aji’s research interests lie in the areas of numerical analysis, computational applied mathematics, nonlinear partial differential equations, and complex analysis. She developed teaching modules to improve students’ learning in STEM disciplines. Her current interests are in teaching fully online and technology based learning.

Dr. Aji has been a principal or co-principal investigator on numerous engaging multidisciplinary NSF projects. She attracted over $2 million funding since 2009 as PI, Co-PI, or Senior Personnel. A noteworthy aspect of her grants is its interdisciplinary nature which brings together the areas of Engineering, Computing, Mathematics, and Technology demonstrating how these areas interact and enrich each other. Through her funded projects, Dr. Aji has successfully involved and supported more than 25 undergraduate students at Tuskegee University in interdisciplinary research.

Dr. Aji's research work resulted in publication in highly selective journals.
