Dr. Mutaz Mohammad is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Zayed University (ZU) since Aug 1st, 2021 till now. Currently, he is serving an additional administration duty as Assistant Dean for Students Affairs on the Abu Dhabi campus. He joined ZU as an Assistant Professor on August 6, 2016. Prior to joining ZU, he was an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the American University of Kuwait from 2015 to 2016, and a lecturer at King Fahd University of Petrouim and Minerals and King Saud Univerity between 2010 to 2012. Dr. Mutaz Mohammad has over 10 years of teaching at various universities, including Zayed University, American University of Kuwait, Central Michigan University, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, and King Saud University Mutaz’s research activity is organized under several interrelated topics in applied mathematics. I have made significant contributions to the field of numerical analysis and have established a recognized & successful research activity. The recent line of my research has been primarily focused on the following:

The areas of numerical harmonic analysis with its applications are based on wavelet and framelet analysis. Recently, I have been focusing on the mathematical modeling of many areas in engineering, biomedical, and physics-based on fractional calculus. We use wavelets and their generalization (framelets) to model the problem. This is large since wavelets have the right structure to capture the sparsity in physical images, and perfect mathematical properties such as their multi-scale structure, sparsity, smoothness, compactly supported, and high vanishing moments. We use these systems of wavelets and framelets to simulate the resulting models. The method shows an effective and accurate technique for solving several types of weakly singular types of fractional order integro-differential equations with applications to solve a system of fractional order models that describe the dynamics of uninfected, infected, and free viruses carried out by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL), COVID-19 dynamical systems, HIV transmission dynamics, Alzheimer disease, artificial intelligence (AI) knowledge-based systems and many biological applications. Currently, we are working to construct a new family of wavelet frames based on a new set of refinable functions (in Sobolev) with the proper properties needed in some real-world applications. This new approach is expected to attract a good readership.
