About Me

I received my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from York University in 2014,  obtained an M.A. in Mathematics and Statistics from York University in 2009, B.Sc. degree in Mathematics, as well as M.Sc. in Pure Mathematics in 1982 and 1985 respectively.

Since 2015 I am teaching for the Mathematics and Statistics department of the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Graduate Studies at York University.

I am also the Vice Principal of Francis Libermann C.H.S, TCDSB.

My research interests are in the fields of Medical Imaging and Machine Learning.

Research Interest

My Research area is Medical Imaging and Machine Learning. Currently, I am interested in subspace learning, convex optimization, and sparse approximations.

Machine Learning, particularly:

  • Subspace-based learning
  • Applications in Medical Imaging
  • Applications in Change Detection
  • Supervised learning
  • Unsupervised Learning

Mathematics Education, particularly:

  • Teaching Mathematics Through Problem Solving
  • Enrichment in Mathematics- Training teachers and students for Math Contests and Olympiads
  • The Use of Technology in Mathematics Classroom
  • Differentiating Classroom Instruction For Reaching Diverse Group Of Learners
