Brief Biography

Daoud Siniora is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Actuarial Science at The American University in Cairo. He works in the field of pure mathematics. More precisely, his research lies in the area of model theory, a branch of mathematical logic. Previously, he gave research talks and visited several academic places including the University of Leeds, University of Edinburgh, Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge, University of Munster, University of Freiburg, University of Konstanz, Birzeit University, and the Institute of Henri Poincare in Paris. He also taught mathematics in Bethlehem University in Palestine and in the University of Leeds. He was awarded the Taher Family Scholarship during his undergraduate study, the Chevening Scholarship during his master's program, and the Leeds International Research Scholarship to attain his PhD degree.
