Dr. Mehmet Dik, professor and chair of the mathematics, computer science, and physics department, joined the Rockford University mathematics department in the fall of 2003 after working for Hendrix College, Conway, Ark., as a visiting assistant professor of Mathematics for one year. In June 1993, he received his B.S. degree with the highest rank in mathematics from the University of Istanbul, Istanbul, Turkey. While he was a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Istanbul in 1994, he won a six-year-scholarship from the Ministry of National Education of Turkey to get M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the USA. He received his M.S. degree (1997) and Ph.D. degree (2002) in mathematics from the University of Missouri – Rolla, Miss., USA.

Mehmet’s passion is teaching mathematics and doing research. His current areas of research and interest are summability theory, subsequential Tauberian theory, Taubeian theorems, undergraduate research, and university teaching.

Mehmet Dik is a member of the American Mathematical Society, the Turkish Mathematical Society, and the Mathematical Association of America. He was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Northern Illinois Association of Teachers of Mathematics.
