  • Introduction to Analysis (In MAM202): Real numbers; open and closed intervals; sequences and series (convergence); functions of a real variable (continuity, limit); series of functions; Taylor series.

  • Topology (In MAT315): Revision on sets and functions; topological spaces (fundamental concepts, closure, interior, neighborhood, subspaces, bases and continuity); lower separation axioms (T0, T1 and T2).

  • Introduction to Category Theory: An honours course that reveals how different pure mathematics structures are related to one another. For instance, topological spaces, groups, rings and sets.

Research Interests:
  • General Topology
  • Pointfree Topology
  • Category Theory

Honours Projects:

My research interest is in pure mathematics with topics in general topology and pointfree topology. I use categorical notions to extend work in the mentioned topics.
