Today, one of Roy Fukuto's last graduate students, Prof. Azhari Omer Abdelbagi, stopped by to visit. He has had a very successful career at the University of Khartoum in Sudan. In addition to his university work, he is currently serving as the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research for the Republic of Sudan. Below is a picture of Undersecretary Abdelbagi (middle) with Prof. Mike Adams (on left) and David Eastmond (on right). It was good to hear of Dr. Abdelbagi's success. He will be meeting with administrative officials later today, which will hopefully lead to closer collaborations between UC Riverside and those in the Sudan.
