Dr. Mohammed Qazi obtained his Ph.D. in 1997 from the École Polytechnique de Montréal (Université de Montréal), Montréal, Canada. Subsequently, he was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Currently, Dr. Qazi is a Professor of Mathematics at Tuskegee University.
In his scientific research, Dr. Qazi works on various extensions of Bernstein-type inequalities which play an important role in the Theory of Approximation. He also assumes leadership roles as Principal Investigator/Executive Director on numerous multi-institution and multi-disciplinary Alliances funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to broaden participation of groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM at all levels. His current total funding in leadership capacities exceeds $11 million.
his presentation will describe the goals and programmatic interventions of a virtual model for STEM doctoral education for underrepresented minorities (URM) in STEM, established by the project “The Tuskegee Alliance to Forge Pathways to Academic Careers in STEM (T-PAC)”, which is funded by the NSF’s Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program.
