Brief Biography

Adam Yassine is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Actuarial Science at The American University in Cairo. Adam received his PhD in pure mathematics from the University of California, Riverside (UCR). His research interests lie at the intersection of mathematical physics, differential geometry, and category theory. He has given invited research talks at the Joint Mathematics Meeting and the American University of Beirut.

Adam has taught a wide range of lower and upper division math courses. As a hired lecturer at UCR, he taught advanced courses in probability theory and topology. He is also involved in outreach and international education. In summer, 2019, Adam was a teaching assistant at UCR for a Faculty Led Education Abroad Program (FLEAP) in probability theory, which was taught at University College London (UCL). After the course, Adam and his collaborators continued working with undergraduates who participated in the FLEAP program on a research project and have submitted a paper for publication with undergraduate co-authors.
