Biography:

Boza Tasic

Dr. Boza Tasic is currently an Assistant Professor in Global Management Studies at the Ted Rogers School of Management. He joined Ryerson University in 2006 as an assistant professor in the mathematics department. He taught calculus and linear algebra courses for engineering and science students as well as mathematics for economics. During the period 2010-2013 he was the coordinator of the Math Centre at Ryerson. One part of his role as the coordinator was developing online teaching tools and systems for assessment and data capturing. He designed interactive basic math modules for all five faculties. Another part of his role was introducing an academic peer support model known as FA-ST (Facilitated study) to the first year engineering math courses. He joined the Ted Rogers School of Management in 2013. He teaches QMS (quantitative methods) courses at the Ted Rogers School of Management. His research interest is in universal algebra and mathematical logic. He has been a member of the Yeats School of Graduate Studies since 2007. He was nominated for TVO’s Best Lecturer in 2010.
