Welcome to episode 80.
Dr. Joseph Malinzi, originally from Uganda but now based in Eswatini, is my guest today. In this episode, he takes us on a journey through his academic career, which began in a Ugandan school. He excelled in high school and was given the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Education at Makerere University. Joseph admits that there was a time in his life when he had no clear career plan. He applied for a postgraduate diploma at The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cape Town, South Africa. This was a 10-month accelerated postgraduate program. He then went on to do a master's degree at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, followed by a PhD at the same institution. He is currently a lecturer in the mathematics department at the University of Eswatini and a honorary research fellow at Durban University of Technology. Dr. Joseph Malinzi's research is focused on mathematical disease modeling. He constructs and analyzes mathematical models to describe and solve problems that arise in nature. His research interests span dynamical systems, biomathematics, computational mathematics, and big data. Stay tuned as we learn more about this and much more!
