Angela Tabiri

Ghana

Class of 2014

Angela Tabiri graduated from AIMS-Ghana in 2014 with a Masters in Mathematical Sciences and a prior background in Mathematics from the University of Ghana. She is an AIMS-Google AI Postdoctoral Fellow at the centre and from September to December 2019, taught courses in Linear Algebra in the MSc program and Mathematics for Machine Learning in the AMMI program. Her research interests include noncommutative algebra, quantum groups and quantum homogeneous spaces.

Femafricmaths is an NGO she founded to promote African females in mathematics. They interview female African mathematicians and share content on their social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) to inspire young girls that there are diverse career options when you study mathematics.

With support from AIMS-Ghana and University of Glasgow, Femafricmaths organised the first Science Slam event in Ghana in 2019. Science Slam is a science communication event where scientists share their research in fun and engaging ways. Currently, Angela has some volunteers who join her on weekends to teach mathematics in a Junior High School in her community (Ashaiman). They are providing support to BECE candidates so they can pass their exams in June and have access to free Senior High School education provided by the government of Ghana. Additionally, she assists in running the AIMS Ghana Girls in Mathematical Sciences Program (GSMP) created for bright, curious and creative female high school students to unlock their potential in Mathematics.
