Dr. Fadimba came to the University of South Carolina Aiken from a visiting position at the University of Rhode Island, where he spent two years mainly teaching undergraduate mathematics. Before going to the University of Rhode Island, he was an Assistant Professor for 2 years, then a tenured Assistant Professor of Mathematics for 4 years at the University of Lomé in Togo.  After finishing the Ph.D. program at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, he spent the equivalent of an academic year at the Institute for Scientific Computation, Texas A & M University, in College Station as a Postdoctoral Fellow.  He is now a Professor at USCA. 

Main research interests:  Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations.
