Biography


Professor Dr. Ali H. M. Murid received his B.Sc. (Mathematics) and M.Sc. (Applied Mathematics) from Iowa State University, USA in 1983 and 1986  respectively,  Diploma of Education from UTM in 1988, and Ph.D from UTM in 1997. His Ph.D thesis was on boundary integral equation formulations for numerical conformal mapping written under the supervisions of Allahyarham Prof. Dr. Mohd. Rashidi Md. Razali (UTM) and Prof. Dr. M. Zuhair Nashed (formerly at University of Delaware, USA). He joined UTM in 1988 and has taught several courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels.  The undergraduate courses that he has taught are Calculus, Calculus of Several Variables, Vector Calculus, Differential Equations, Numerical Methods, Functions of Complex Variables, and Mathematical Modelling. For graduate courses, he has taught Applied and Computational Complex Analysis, Mathematical Methods, Numerical Integral Equations, and Advanced Engineering Mathematics. He was the Chairperson for the Mathematics Program at the Ibnu Sina Institute for Fundamental Science Studies (now known as Ibnu Sina Institute for Scientific and Industrial Research) for two years from June 2009 until May 2011. He was a research fellow at UTM Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (UTM-CIAM) from  2013-2018. His research interests are applied and computational complex analysis and mathematical modeling of industrial problems.
