"To most students, mathematics is a subject which is generally difficult, yet essential. I enjoy teaching mathematics mainly because I like the challenge of getting students involved and interested in such a beautiful subject."Asif Mahmood, assistant professor of applied mathematics
I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University at Buffalo in 2012. Before coming to UVA, I worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Ohio University, as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Pennsylvania State University - York campus and as Assistant Professor Mathematics at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Over the past several years, I have taught a wide variety of courses including Pre-Calculus, College Algebra, Calculus (I & II), Multivariable Calculus, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations, Matrices, Applied Numerical Methods, Applied Linear Algebra, Business Calculus and Consumer Mathematics. My research interests lie broadly in the areas of applied mathematics, fluid mechanics and geophysical mass flows. I am mainly interested in the analytical and computational modeling of various problems arising from the dynamics of different fluids (Newtonian, non-Newtonian, power-law-type, and nanofluids).
