Samer Habre

Samer Habre is an associate professor of Mathematics at the Lebanese American University in Beirut, Lebanon, where he has been serving also as the Chairperson of the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics since October 2008. He had earned his BS in Mathematics from the American University in Beirut in 1984, his MS and PhD in Mathematics from Syracuse University (New York) in 1986 and 1991 respectively, and has been teaching at the Lebanese American University since 1993. In 1998 he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship that he spent at Cornell University (New York), and in 2005 he was a visiting scholar at California Polytechnic State University. Samer Habre research interests vary between the teaching of mathematics at the university level with visualization aids (particularly dynamical software programs) and research on discrete dynamical systems. He has numerous publications in both fields.
