Mathematician Zair Ibragimov returns to his native Uzbekistan in late August to teach and conduct research at the National University of Uzbekistan as a 2014-15 Fulbright U.S. scholar.

He will teach a two-semester course in fractal geometry — an emerging area of mathematics not offered at Uzbekistan universities. His goal: to motive students to pursue careers in math.

The associate professor of mathematics, who joined CSUF in 2007, has 16 years of experience teaching undergraduate and graduate courses at U.S. universities. Ibragimov earned his doctorate at the University of Michigan, is the recipient the 2012 International Anassilaos Prize in Mathematics and organized the international USA-Uzbekistan Conference on campus in May.
