Dr Lubna holds a PhD in Mathematics from the University of York, UK.  She has held positions as Visiting Research Fellow at the University of York and Schlumberger Research Fellow at the Mathematical Institute- University of Oxford, UK.


In the institutions where I have worked, I have instructed classes and tutorials in a range of subjects, including


  • Introduction to Number Theory
  • Vector Calculus
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Representation theory
  • Semigroup Theory
  • Complex Analysis
  • Formal languages and Automata theory
  • Introduction to Model Theory
  • Calculus I/II
  • Multivariable Calculus/Differential Geometry
  • Linear Algebra
  • Analysis I/II
  • Infinite Groups
  • Commutative Algebra
  • Engineering Mathematics Foundation and Undergraduate Level

Most recently, I have taught Statistics Modelling I (MTH520), Maths A (Sef040), Maths B (Sef041) and Essential Foundation (Sef026) Courses here at Queen Mary.


Research Interests:

My principal research interests involve mathematical problems that arise in ``axiomatisability questions in group and semi-group actions, and model-theoretic properties of certain structures, known as Zariski geometries, arising from number theory and algebraic geometry''.
