The Perfect Equation

No matter how many steps it takes to solve a math problem, Dr. Mufid Abudiab is always up for the challenge. The associate professor of mathematics, who chose math over medicine, arrived at the Island University in fall of 1994 from the University of Puget Sound. A Palestinian native, Abudiab is the advisor of the Muslim Student Association, has received numerous honors. Earlier this year the Alumni Association honored Abudiab with the Distinguished Faculty Award for consistently showing his passion for teaching difficult math concepts and working with students. He is a member of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's Statewide Mathematics Vertical Team and a GEAR UP/STAR Faculty Fellow, and has served as the Mathematics Core Curriculum director. In addition, he is involved with the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of America, the American Society for Engineering Education, and the South Texas Philosophy Society. Currently, Abudiab, who teaches business calculus and business math, is sharpening his own skills by earning his MBA at the University. Recently, he published a paper based on part of his Ph.D. thesis "On the Dynamics of HIV Infection."
