Meet the Tutors

Meet the Tutors

Tutoring at AIMS centres is a wonderful opportunity to meet and work closely with highly-respected scientists from around the world and brilliant and highly motivated students from across Africa. AIMS students have strong backgrounds in the mathematical sciences (including pure and applied mathematics, physics, computer science, mathematical biology and other fields). 

While outstanding visiting lecturers are recruited from all over the world to teach and prepare students for advanced postgraduate research, the courses are unusually broad in scope and employ the latest pedagogical methods to stimulate critical and creative thinking. To facilitate student participation and follow-up, each centre offers a Tutoring Fellowship, which permits post-doc and doctorate researchers to work as dedicated teaching assistants, with the responsibility of providing capacity building for the students 24/7. The unique residential character of the institute allows for optimum interaction between students and tutors in a congenial environment at all hours. Meet our tutors for the 2020/2021 academic year.
