About me

My name is Almaz Butaev and from August 2021 to August 2023 I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematical Science, University of Cincinnati. I received my PhD from Concordia University (Montréal) under the supervision of Professor Galia Dafni. Before coming to UC, I was a postdoc at University of Calgary, where my advisor was Professor Alex Brudnyi.  


My research interests are harmonic analysis, function spaces, Whitney problems and analysis on metric measure spaces.
