Azime Serpil Saydam, Associate Professor and Department Chair of Mathematics, began working at Texas Southern University in January 2011. She earned a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Her research areas are commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, commutative rings, and computational algebra. She had been Assistant Professor, tenured Associate Professor, Assistant Department Head, and Department Head of Mathematics and Physics at University of Louisiana at Monroe for 11 years.
Of course, the most rewarding part of Dr. Saydams job is to see fresh and inquisitive minds. She tries her best pedagogically to inspire them to a practical and critical comprehension and appreciation of some beautiful mathematical ideas through her fully-prepared lecture notes and clearly-presented lectures. She prepares students to become mathematically well-versed, who make our society better and brighter through their intelligent theoretical and practical works. She has been an active scholar with numerous journal publications, presentations, honors and awards, and involvement in various committees and mathematics societies.
At TSU since her employment as the Department Chair of Mathematics, Dr. Saydam has set a very effective and viable agenda for a reorganization of the department to become better and more efficient in relation to students and faculty. Also, the accomplishments of which Dr. Saydam had achieved at ULM, and is most proud of, include: (1)becoming the distinguished professor in 2006, (2) founding of KME (Kappa Mu Epsilon)Mathematics Honor Society in 2001, (3) serving and later becoming the director of ULM Honors program in 2004, (4) publishing in some major journals of mathematics, (5) becoming the most favorite professor by students, and (6) getting promoted to the department head of mathematics.
