Biographical Sketch:
Mohammed Qazi received his Ph.D. from the École Polytechnique de Montréal, Montréal, Canada. Dr. Qazi's 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. In addition, Dr. Qazi serves in leadership capacities on several externally funded projects that are designed to broaden the participation of groups that are underepresented in STEM.
