The Progressive Career Journey of Ben Sorowen as a RUFORUM Alumnus


Mr.  Ben Sorowen is an Assistant Lecturer at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, at Kyambogo University. Mr.  Ben is a Ugandan, born on the 24th January, 1992. Ben got appointed at the Department of Mathematics as a Graduate Fellow in 2017, He enrolled for his master degree of Science in Mathematics at Mbarara University of Science and Technology in 2018 under the RUFORUM programme of Graduate Assistantship.

The Graduate Teacher Assistance (GTA) contract was an agreement between Kyambogo University the sending university and Mbarara University of Science and Technology the receiving university, the signing process was facilitated by the RUFORUM secretariat. The terms of the contract included a 100% tuition waiver and any other fees by the receiving university and working space which facilitated Ben’s studies at Mbarara University of Science and Technology.

Ben Graduated from Mbarara University of Science and Technology on the 24th April, 2021. His research topic for the master thesis was “Estimation of the number of negative eigenvalues of magnetic Schrödinger operator in a strip”.  

On his return to his sending Institution Kyambogo University, Mr. Ben has coauthored and published one article titled “Eigenvalue estimates for magnetic Schrödinger operator in a waveguide” in a high impact and peer reviewed journal and he currently works at the Department of Mathematics at Kyambogo University as an Assistant Lecturer.

Mr. Ben’s current research work focuses on obtaining an analogue to Cwikel-Lieb-Rozenblum inequality type for magnetic Schrödinger operators in different domains such as curved quantum waveguides and spiral shaped quantum waveguides that appear quite often in physics, usually with practical applications in mind. He believes that his work will give a deep understanding of nanoparticle detection, construction of atomic gyroscopes, acoustic waveguides, spectrometry and optical devices such as the spiral shaped antennas.

Ben is looking forward to enroll for a PhD in pure mathematics as soon as possible and advance his studies in mathematical analysis of self-adjoint operators under the GTA program.
