Maths Support Centre in the University Library
one-to-one or in a small group support to students in Mathematics of any sort, from foundation to advanced
provide support on basic Statistics, data handling, presenting results and explaining statistical findings using SPSS, Mini-Tab and Excel
provide support on Mathematical software such as Mathematica, Matlab, Latex etc.
During term-time, Rehana is in the Maths Support Centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Areas of Interest
After completing her MSc in Pure Maths from the Dept. of Mathematics, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Rehana started her career as lecturer there in 1991. She gained her PhD from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh in 1996.
Interests lie in the following areas of pure Mathematics:
- Bifurcation Theory
- Non-linear Analysis
- Differential Equations
- Numerical Analysis
Before joining Reading University, she taught undergraduate Mathematics modules at various universities in the UK including Oxford Brookes University, Brunel University, and Middlesex University.
Rehana also works as an associate Tutor in Mathematics and Statistics for Upgrade at Oxford Brookes University. Upgrade is the University's confidential study advice service.
Rehana is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
