I am a versatile, dedicated and innovative mathematics and statistics educator and researcher with international teaching, community engagement and research experience. I have taught a diverse range of mathematics and statistics courses and I have also reviewed curricula and developed new degree programmes. I also possess excellent communication, collaborative and team building skills, as evidenced by my interdisciplinary research outputs and collaborative research initiatives with international partners. I also have a demonstrated history of working in the conventional as well as the online and the open and distance modes of teaching and learning. I am highly skilled in problem solving, teamwork, counselling and public speaking.  I am proficient in Numerical Modeling, MATLAB, Mathematica, R, Microsoft Office and Latex. I possess extensive experience in teaching Engineering Mathematics, Fluid Mechanics, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Linear Algebra and many more. In addition, I am equipped with the necessary skills, competencies, dedication, zeal and a strong desire to generate and share knowledge with others.
