The Library welcomes Aziz Aboueleinin to the position of Evening Supervisor and Technical Support in the Davis Centre Library.
In this position, Aziz supervises and trains evening casual staff members to work at the Circulation Desks and provides technical support for library visitors with computing and printing questions.
To help encourage a positive and productive environment for students in the DC Library, Aziz also trains and supervises staff members employed to promote compliance with the Library’s policies on food and noise.
Aziz brings a significant amount of experience and education to this position. Before starting in it at the end of May, he worked for two years as part of the Davis Reserves unit. Prior to arriving at the Library, he completed a PhD in Food Science at the University of Vermont, accumulated over 12 years of experience teaching students, and worked for three years in Japan as a researcher developing natural functional food ingredients.
When asked about any highlights of the position so far, he mentions working during the World Cup this summer. "The students were very excited. You could feel the excitement from the noise level after each goal. In the semi-final match it seemed like all the students in the Library were watching the game."
Outside of work, Aziz enjoys gardening, biking, watching soccer, and playing X-Box with his children Mohamed, Hossam, and Habibah.
