Biographical Sketch:

Dr. Mohammed A. Qazi received his Ph.D. from the École Polytechnique de Montréal, Montréal, Canada. His research focuses on various extensions of Bernstein-type inequalities which play an important role in the Theory of Approximation. He is also interested in various aspects of the Theory of Functions of a Complex Variable. Dr. Qazi regularly presents his research findings at national and international forums. In addition, he serves in leadership capacities on several externally funded projects that are designed to 1) diversify STEM education; and, 2) improve mathematics and science education in K-12 schools.

Research Fields:
  • Theory of Functions of One Complex Variable
  • Approximation Theory
  • Mathematics Education at all levels
  • Diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
  • Recruitment and Retention Initiatives for Underrepresented Minorities (URMs) in STEM
