Curriculum Vitae

 
 
 

 

 
 

Abu M Khan is an Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Physics, School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, NSU. He joined NSU in Fall 2013. Dr. Khan earned the PhD degree in mathematical physics from the University of Florida, Gainesville, USA in 2004. His worked on the "Continuous Spin Representation" of the Poincare Group. He analyzed how this particular representation of the Poincare Group may occur in nature if it exists. Before this, Dr. Khan also earned the "Advanced Study in Mathematics" from the Univercity of Cambridge in 1998 which is the Master's degree in Mathematics. This is commonly known as the Part-III of the Mathematical Tripos.
