Nigeria’s Abba Gumel elected fellow of American Mathematical Society

Abba Gumel, Nigerian-born US-essentially primarily based completely largely Professor of Mathematical Biology, has been elected Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (AMS).

He is amongst successfully-known mathematicians elected for 2023 Class of Fellows of the Society.

Gumel was as soon as recognised for his contributions to the mathematical considered epidemics, utilized dynamical applications, and promoting the expend of arithmetic to abet resolve international public well being challenges.

He is amongst the 4 Africans to be elected Fellow of the American Mathematical Society.

Two diversified Africans – one first and primary from Benin Republic and another from Central African Republic – are fellows of the distinguished society.

The closing from Nigeria was as soon as appointed eventually of the inaugural 12 months in 2013.

Gumel was as soon as a Foundation Professor of Arithmetic on the Faculty of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, Arizona Say Faculty, sooner than changing into The Michael and Eugenia Brin Endowed E-Nnovate Chair in Arithmetic on the Division of Arithmetic, Faculty of Maryland, Faculty Park in 2022.

His evaluation, which spans three predominant areas of utilized arithmetic (specifically, mathematical biology, utilized dynamical applications and computational arithmetic), is centered on the expend of mathematical modeling and rigorous approaches, on the facet of statistical prognosis, to current perception into the dynamics of precise-lifestyles phenomena arising within the pure and engineering sciences.

The primary emphasis of Gumel’s work is on the mathematical considered epidemics – significantly, he makes expend of mathematical theories and methodologies to current insights into the qualitative habits of nonlinear dynamical applications arising from the mathematical modelling of phenomena within the pure and engineering sciences, with emphasis on the transmission dynamics and regulate of rising and re-rising human (and diversified animal) infectious illnesses of public well being and socio-economic passion.

In 2021, Gumel was as soon as chosen to current the AMS Einstein Public Lecture in Arithmetic of the American Mathematical Society. He was as soon as named Phenomenal Professor on the Division of Arithmetic and Utilized Arithmetic, Faculty of Pretoria and Adjunct Professor on the Division of Utilized Arithmetic, Faculty of Waterloo, Canada.

Gumel has written over 160 see-reviewed evaluation, a large amount of e guide chapters and edited three books.

In 2014, Professor Gumel turned one among eight US-essentially primarily based completely largely scientists who signed a memorandum of figuring out with seven Nigerian universities aimed in route of serving to them assemble world-class functionality in biomedical sciences evaluation and pedagogy.
