Ali Mostafazadeh received his B.S. degrees in physics and mathematics from Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 1989, and his Ph.D. degree in physics from The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Tex, USA under the supervision of Professor Bryce DeWitt in 1994. He was a Research Associate at the Institute for Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics (IPM), Tehran, and a Physics Faculty Member at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and held a postdoctoral research position at the University of Alberta before joining the Department of Mathematics, Koç University, Istanbul, where he works as a Full Professor of mathematical physics since 2004. Mostafazadeh received the Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship Award of the University of Alberta in 1994, the Outstanding Young Scientist Award of Turkish Academy of Sciences in 2001, Professor M. Parlar Research Encouragement Award of Middle Eastern Technical University also in 2001, the Werner von Siemens Excellence Award of Koç University in 2006, and the Science Award in Basic Sciences of Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey in 2007. Mostafazadeh’s research interests include differential geometric and topological methods in theoretical physics, quantum mechanics, quantum cosmology, supersymmetry and its generalizations, and pseudo-Hermitian Hamiltonians. He serves as a Member of the Editorial Boards of the International Journal of Geometric Methods in Modern Physics and the Hacettepe Journal of Mathematics and Statistics and a Principal Member of the Turkish Academy of Sciences since 2007.
