Hala King, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Mathematics
Dr. King brings to CLU her passion for teaching and a wide variety of teaching experiences. She has taught as an instructor at high school and college levels in her home country of Lebanon, as a graduate student at Stanford while pursuing her Ph.D. in mathematics, and as a professor at UC Santa Cruz and at Pepperdine University prior to settling at the CLU campus a few years ago. Recognized by her students as a faculty member who "goes the extra mile," Dr. King has a clear vocation for teaching. Her research interests lie in number theory and geometric analysis. Dr. King is committed to providing students with rich learning experiences and is involved in supervising undergraduate research at CLU. When she is not learning, teaching, mentoring, advising, or overseeing undergraduate research projects, Dr. King loves to spend as much time with her sons as possible. They read together, bake together, travel, go on long walks, watch movies, garden, play board games, and entertain lively math socials at their house. She and her husband can also be seen at the soccer field watching their younger son’s cool soccer moves, or at Thousand Oaks High School band competitions enjoying their older son's tenor saxophone tunes. Her sons are a tremendous source of pride, happiness, and blessing in her life, and a driving force behind all she strives for.
