Head of Mathematics Department, Hebron University


Dr. Almanasreh has been an academic since 2004.  Dr. Almanasreh is an assistant Professor obtained his undergraduate degree in mathematics from Hebron University in Palestine. He obtained his Master and Doctoral degrees in applied mathematics (Numerical analysis/Differential equations) from Chalmers University and the University of Gothenburg respectively in Sweden. Currently, Dr. Almanasreh is working as a full time lecturer at the mathematics department at Hebron University.  His research interests fall under the area of numerical analysis and differential equations, in particular the finite element method (FEM) and the meshfree methods (MFM) for differential equations with much more interests towards the Dirac equation. Also, other interests for Dr. Almanasreh are spectral theory particularly scattering theory and G-convergence and Gamma-convergence for differential operators.
