Dr. Atma Sahu has served for over 30 years at Coppin State University (CSU) in a wide range of positions, including mathematics faculty, applied math researcher, team leader, mathematics and computer science department chairperson, and liaison to K-12 mathematics education. Currently serving as Professor and Chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science department at Coppin State University, Baltimore MD. He has been consistently instrumental in developing the vision for the department’s curriculum, pedagogical, and curricula changes both face-to-face and Quality Matters Based Online. He has taught effectively courses ranging from college algebra to Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, on-ground as well as online. Dr. Sahu has been influential in working collaboratively with colleagues in activities related to Science, Technologies, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research, grant writing, and serving on grant proposal review panels of federal agencies in the United States. He has published numerous research papers in US domestic and international refereed journals in his areas of expertise. He continuously has inspired doctoral research students by serving on their doctoral research committees as well as serving as a Ph.D. dissertation examiner. He has delivered numerous research papers-presentations and has delivered keynote addresses in numerous domestic and international professional meetings. In addition to serving as Chair of the Curriculum, Standards, and Policy Committee, Dr. Sahu also serves the Division of Academic Affairs, College, and the Department at CSU on multiple broader service committees, including chairing the curriculum and standards university committee, chairing the faculty Recognition Committee, Faculty appeals committee, and Students Scholarships committees are just a few. In grants and projects, Dr. Sahu has worked with numerous research co-workers in the USA as well as in India. Dr. Sahu successfully wrote NSF-DST supported workshop grant to increase multi-faculty research capacity involving international collaboration on Elastic Vibrations, Smart Structures, and Their Solution Technologies, and hosted jointly by IIT Roorkee (University of Roorkee). He has also been awarded a $300,000.00 NSA Cybersecurity Engineering capacity-building grant as a Co-PI. Dr. Sahu's excellence in project management and leading organizations and teams has no borders. Also, Dr. Sahu is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Fuzzy Computation and Modelling, and an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Engineering, Applied Sciences, and Management. Dr. Sahu has earned the 2022 Excellence in teaching faculty award and in 2021 Excellence in Mathematics Research faculty award, from Coppin State University. He served as a university nominee on MHEC advisory council. Currently, he is one of the board of directors of the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee Foundation, Inc., based in VA, USA.
