Mathematics is an international language. I taught math in Egypt, Pennsylvania, Kuwait, Texas and finally in California. I have been teaching at SJSU since 1985.

I was the advisor to six graduate students. Their theses and projects include topics on the Fibonacci numbers, elliptic functions, the Brahmagupta polynomials, boundary value problems, contour integration and the summation of series.
