I received both bachelors (2004) and
masters (2005) degrees in Engineering and Engineering Mathematics from Tunisia Polytechnic
School. In
Dec 2005, I
received my second Master of Science in Mathematics degree from Virginia Tech.
I received my Ph.D degree in Mathematics
in May 2008 from Virginia Tech. I served as a Graduate
Teaching Assistant and as a Graduate Research Assistant at VT and taught several
different freshman level courses in this role as well as serving as a tutor
for both traditional and online students. In Fall 2008, I joined the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where I worked
as an Assistant professor in the Department of
Mathematics. In
Spring 2014, I got promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure. My interests of research
and teaching are in applied mathematics. Specifically my interests are
related to numerical solutions of ordinary and partial differential
equations. I am currently
investigating topics related to numerical
analysis, scientific
computing, numerical methods for solving differential
equations using higherorder methods including discontinuous
Galerkin methods and finite element methods, applied and computational
mathematics, error estimation and adaptivity, and computational fluid
dynamics. I am also studying numerical solutions of mathematical problems
using higherorder methods with broader applications. I am interested in
collaborating with experimentalists in these fields. I enjoy doing research with graduate and
undergraduate students. My objectives are to
practice, teach, conduct research, publish, and consult in the field of
applied mathematics. Furthermore, I would like the opportunity to empower
undergraduate and graduate students in the field of applied mathematics,
including scientific computation and engineering applications. Teaching (UNO) Department of
Mathematics (Fall 2008Present): I teach Calculus (Math 1950, 1960), applied Linear
Algebra (2050), Differential equations (Math 2350), Numerical methods (Math
3300), Partial differential equations (Math 4330, 8250) and Numerical
analysis (Math 8500, 8510) courses at all levels. If you are currently
enrolled in one of my classes you should find the syllabus and course
materials on the Blackboard website. Teaching (Virginia Tech) Department of
Mathematics (Fall 2004Spring 2008): I taught the following courses: Math
1205, Math
1206, Math 2015. I also worked as a Mathematics tutor at the math emporium, a campus computer
facility, Virginia Tech, 2004 2006. Personal: My wife is Nassiba and I
have two daughters, Meriem (b. 2009) and Iman (b. 2012). I hope they will be
using DG methods to solve PDEs by Next year!
