Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie Mellon University, 2021.
Licenciatura en Matemáticas (B.S. in Mathematics), Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, 2015.
Dr. Mazari-Armida is originally from Mexico City. He lived in Mexico until he moved to Pittsburgh to start graduate school in 2015. He joined the Baylor faculty in 2023. Prior to coming to Baylor, he was a Burnett Meyer Postdoctoral Fellow at CU Boulder (2021- 2023). Besides teaching and researching mathematics, Dr. Mazari-Armida enjoys playing boardgames and spending time with his family.
Academic Interests and Research
Dr. Mazari-Armida research primarily focuses on finding connections between logic and algebra. More specifically, he works at the interface between model theory and module theory. He mostly studies classes of modules and abelian groups as abstract elementary classes in an effort to better understand algebraic and model theoretic concepts. Most of the classes he studies are not first-order axiomatizable.
