Profile

Overview: Dr Azhana Ahmad is a senior lecturer in pure mathematics. She joined School of Mathematical Sciences, USM  in 2008. Her main interest is in p-groups particularly on computing the conjugacy classes and order classes for some of the groups. She uses Groups, Algorithms, and Programming (GAP) software in her research.
