Yousef Zahaykah

Yousef Zahaykah, Ph.D. is assistant professor of Applied Mathematics and Numerical Analysis at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science at Al-Quds University in Palestine, since 2004. During 2002-2004 he used to hold a research position in the Institute of Numerical Analysis (IAN) at The University of Magdeburg in Germany. Moreover, during 1990-1991 he was an instructor of Mathematics at the Arab Society College in Amman, Jordan and from 1991 to 1997 he was also an instructor of Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science at Al-Quds University in Palestine.

Mr. Zahaykah received the scholarship of DAAD (The German Academic Exchange Service) for short visit research at the Institute of Numerical Analysis (IAN) in the University of Magdeburg in Germany from June 2006 to August 2006.

The Educational Background of Mr. Zahaykah is as follows:
▪ 2002 Ph.D. in Mathematics- Numerical Analysis for Partial Differential Equations (Scholarship from DAAD) at University of Magdeburg, Germany.
▪ 1989 M.Sc. in Mathematics (Scholarship from Al-Quds University).The University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan.
▪1987 B.Sc. in Mathematics (Scholarship from School of Arab Institute), Abu-Dies, Jerusalem, Palestine.

Mr. Zahaykah has more than 20 years’ experience in teaching university mathematics, applied mathematics and numerical analysis courses both at the levels of undergraduate and graduate studies. He also supervised several M.Sc. students in the field of applied mathematics and numerical analysis and published several papers in the field of numerical methods for partial differential equations.
