Jamal Kawach

I am an Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream at the Department of Mathematics, University of Toronto. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Applied Mathematics at Charles University, Prague. Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Stevo Todorčević and Jordi López-Abad.


In the academic year 2023-24, I am teaching MAT235Y1: Multivariable Calculus and MAT135H1: Calculus I. All course files and information will be posted on Quercus. For any administrative questions or requests related to MAT235, please use the course admin email.

In the past, I have taught MAT135H1: Calculus I, MAT136H1: Calculus II, and MAT235Y1: Multivariable Calculus at the University of Toronto. In summer 2021, I taught and coordinated MAT135H1. The course was taught and administered entirely online. The syllabus for the course can be found here.


My research interests include Ramsey theory and its interactions with other areas of mathematics, including set theory, the geometry of Banach spaces, and topological dynamics.
