Farhad Jafari, Professor of Mathematics, has been the department head since 2009. Jafari's mathematical interests include functional analysis and operator theory, semigroup theory, harmonic analysis, moment problems, and control theory. He is particularly interested in problems arising from mathematical physics. He serves on the editorial boards of two journals (J. Semigroups Theory and Applications, and Linear and Topological Algebra) and has published over 50 refereed articles.
