Dr. Michalakis Savva receives prestigious Distinguished Scholar Award


South University is proud to celebrate our own School of Pharmacy faculty member Dr. Michalakis Savva, the recipient of the prestigious European Journal of Scientific Research’s Distinguished Scholar Award for the field of Mathematics through his article titled “A Conceptual Problem-Solving Approach for Three-Component Mathematical Mixture Problems – Unraveling the Obscured Method of Alligation Alternate”. Professor Adrian Marcus Steinberg, the Chair of the Independent ad hoc Scientific Award Committee, said:

“Dr. Michalakis Savva has received the prestigious Distinguished Scholar Award 2020, because he has made a significant contribution to the existing knowledge in his selected area of research. His outstanding research shows the method of Alligation Alternate can be useful to experienced users as a shortcut as it provides quick answers to specific two-component problems but it is of no use to students and the novices. The method does not encourage a strategic analysis of the problem based on principles and it also fails to identify the domain of all the variables in order to provide all possible answers to three or higher component mixture problems.”

The Distinguished Scholar Award is a prestigious academic recognition given to a very limited number of scientists from around the world. Congratulations to Dr. Savva on this incredible achievement! https://www.europeanjournalofscientificresearch.com/ejsr_awards_2.html
