Meet new mathematics faculty: Cheikhna Mahawa Diagana

Our newest full-time faculty member in the mathematics department, Cheikhna Mahawa Diagana, is not new to City College. Cheikhna has been teaching math courses here for the past nine years. During that time Cheikhna has studied math and worked as an Adjunct Lecturer in undergraduate calculus courses at NYU. He also served as a TA in graduate courses such as Complex Analysis and Real Analysis at NYU.

At City College Cheikhna has been one of our most enthusiastic math teachers. If you have taken a class with Cheikhna, you know that he loves talking about math and working through math problems with City College students. This is not surprising. Cheikhna was once a City College math student himself. He received a BA in pure mathematics from CCNY in 2008 and a MS in mathematics from NYU in 2012.
