Koffi Fadimba, PhD

I came to the University of South Carolina Aiken from a visiting position at the University of Rhode Island, where I spent two years mainly teaching undergraduate mathematics. Before going to the University of Rhode Island, I was an Assistant Professor for 2 years, then a tenured Assistant Professor of Mathematics for 4 years at the University of Lomé in Togo, my home country. At the University of Lomé, I taught a variety of undergraduate as well as graduate mathematics courses. I also taught mathematics at the University of Lomé, as a Junior Lecturer, from 1983 to 1988, before coming to the US for a Ph.D. program. After I finished my PhD program at USC Columbia, I spent the equivalent of an academic year at the Institute for Scientific Computation, Texas A & M University, in College Station as a Postdoctoral Fellow.
