Dr. Nabila Abughazalah was recently promoted to Director of the Scientific Research Publishing, Deanship of Scientific Research at Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University. She was also awarded an Excellence Award from the Vice Rector for Graduate Studies and Scientific Research for her achievements from her work at MIT.
Dr. Abughazalah spent one year at MIT working with Prof. Pavel Etingof in the Department of Mathematics. Their work together on semigroup theory has resulted in three papers to date:
1. Nabilah Abughazalah and Pavel Etingof, "Linear growth for semigroups which are disjoint unions of finitely many copies of the free monogenic semigroup," Archiv der Mathematik, September 2015, Volume 105, Issue 3, pp 223-228. Published online first, August 20, 2015.
2. N. Abughazalah, P. Etingof, On properties of the lower central series of associative algebras. Journal of Algebra and Its Application. Published: 28 December 2015. Online, http://dx.doi.org/10.1142/S0219498816501875
3. N. Abughazalah, A concrete algorithm of word problem and subsemigroup problem for semigroups which are unions of finitely many copies of the free monogenic semigroup, to be published in Acta Mathematica Hungarica.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Abughazalah for these accomplishments since her time at MIT.
