Executive summary
Prof. Habib did his MS (Integrated) in Mathematics at IIT Kanpur and Ph.D. at University of California, Berkeley. These were followed by postdoctoral positions at the Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad, and the Bangalore Centre of the Indian Statistical Institute. His research interests are in representation theory and mathematical finance.

For over 15 years, he has been involved in efforts to make mathematics education at the school and college level more interesting and fulfilling through special topics, projects, and an appreciation of the myriad links of mathematics with other disciplines. This began during his time as a teacher at St. Stephen’s College and was his main focus during the years he spent with the Mathematical Sciences Foundation. He has also served several times as resident faculty for the Mathematical Training & Talent Search program sponsored by the National Board for Higher Mathematics.

At Shiv Nadar University, Prof. Habib has relished the opportunity to take part in designing undergraduate and graduate curricula from scratch, as well as in setting up a Department of Mathematics that truly believes in “unity in diversity”. He has been Head of Department since 2013, and began a 2-year term as Dean Undergraduate Studies in September 2015. He has received the SNU Faculty Excellence Award for Excellence in Teaching during 2011-14.
