Mazen Bou Khuzam, Assistant Professor, Math and Natural Sciences Department Chair

M.S. American University of Beirut
B.S. American University of Beirut
Office: B-F2-07

Dr. Mazen Bou Khuzam earned his B.S. and M.S. in mathematics from the American University of Beirut. He then went on to the University of Cambridge where he obtained his doctorate in Mathematics with specialty in Geometry and Topology. His main interests and publications are on low dimensional topology, exotic R^{4}’s, and contact structures on 3-manifolds. He has been working recently on the Atiyah-Sutcliffe conjectures on n distinct points of R^{3}. Dr. Khuzam has more than thirteen years of teaching experience at university level in the Middle East.
