Gaston M. N'Guerekata Professor N'Guerekata earned a Ph. D. degree in Mathematics in 1980 from the University of Montreal, Canada, under the supervision of Professor S. Zaidman and then attended the University of California, Berkeley, on a postdoctorate program. His research areas include functional analysis and abstract differential equations in Banach and locally convex spaces, with applications to partial differential equations and functional differential equations. Professor N'Guerekata has made an important contribution in the field of almost automorphic solutions to evolution equations. His monographs on almost automorphy are cornerstones in this area.  Currently, we see an extensive growth of interest to this field, and this is due to Professor N'Guerekata's works. Recently, he has started a new line of research in the area of fractional differential equations.

He is an author of over 170 research publications, including 5 monographs, in the areas of evolution equations, almost automorphic and almost periodic functions, abstract harmonic analysis, and fractional differential equations.  Professor N'Guerekata is the Founder and Chief Editor of the International Journal of Evolution Equations and the Journal of Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Applications, an Associate Editor for the Applicable Analysis, and a member of editorial boards of over 14 other mathematical journals.  

Professor N'Guerekata's research career is amazing.  After staying at UC, Berkeley, as a postdoc scholar, he went to the Central African Republic and became a Professor, Dean, Vice-Rector and Rector of the University of Bangui.  He held several high government positions in his home country. In 1995 he came back to the US as a visiting scholar at the State University of New York at Buffalo, then joined the Morgan State University in 1996, and intensified considerably his research. Professor N'Guerekata is a Fulbrighter, a Member of the Council for African American Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences, and African Academy of Science Fellow. For his contribution to research and higher education, he received numerous honors in the USA such as the "Iva Jones" Medallion, the "Dr. Santye Jean McIntire, II, International Award" and the "NAFEO Noble Award"; the "Legion of honor" from France, the "order of merit" and the "academic palms" from the Central African Republic. He was the Claytor-Wooddard Invited Lecturer at the Mathematics Joint Meetings in San Antonio, Texas, USA, in January 2006, and key note speaker at several International Conferences in the US, India, China, Morocco, Guadeloupe and Cameroon. He visited universities in many countries including France, Canada, Puerto Rico, India, China, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and the US.
