Through our scientific and technological genius, we've made of this world a neighborhood. And now through our moral and ethical commitment, we must make of it a brotherhood.

## Background

Tewodros Amdeberhan is a professor at Tulane University. He holds a BS and MS in mathematics (both with a minor in physics) from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia and a PhD in Mathematics from Temple University.

## Interests

Amdeberhan’s expertise includes combinatorics, number theory, special functions, partial differential equations, computer algebra, algorithmic proof theory, and harmonic analysis. He is a permanent member of the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University. As an MLK visiting professor, Amdeberhan was hosted by the Department of Mathematics, where he taught seminars in discrete mathematics, gave lectures, and participated in various conferences and colloquia.
