Mimoza Polloshka joined RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) as a Math tutor, in November 2003 continuing her cooperation as a part time Math instructor whilst from 2006 she enrolled with a fulltime Math instructor position, where she has been teaching courses of: College Math, Interdisciplinary Math I, Interdisciplinary Math II, Discrete Mathematics and Introduction to Proofs. She was also involved in the Preparatory program of RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) where she was responsible for the Math component program. In the period September 2009-September 2012 she was the Head of Math Unit at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) Mimoza also taught several other courses in a variety of settings, including Analytical Geometry, Theory of Probability, Numerical Linear Algebra at the Department of Mathematics, at the University of Prishtina.
Mimoza is currently a PhD candidate at Faculty of Natural Science in Tirana, Albania, Department of Mathematics, specializing in the field of Algebra, more specifically in the Semigroup Theory, working in some classes of permutable semigroups. Her education is in the field of Mathematics, receiving her MSc Degree from University of Prishtina, while graduating in the field of Algebra, specializing in Semigroup Theory, where she also received her BA degree at Department of Mathematics, faculty of Mathematical and Natural Sciences. In August 2014, she presented at the International conference IECMSA-2014 in Vienna, Austria for the paper that she’s working “Some facts about permutability of Clifford semigroups” (Polloshka M. and Pasku E.). In the period March-May 2013, Mimoza was a visiting scholar at the Math Department of Dartmouth College.
In October 2015, a training workshop to help establishing the RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) Faculty Development Center was organized with the initiative and the development work of Mimoza Polloshka and supporting faculty, and led by Dr. Amy Stage of San Jose State University in California. This initiative is supported from the U.S. Embassy Pristina, Kosovo via the University Support Program. Mimoza is the Coordinator of the Faculty Development Center and she continues organizing the activities of the Center and shares the experiences with the Faculty Development Centers of other Institutions in order to learn from best practices which will benefit to the work of the RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) Faculty Development Center.
Mimoza has been a trainer in the cycle of trainings for math high school teachers of Kosova, as part of the TEMPUS project “Improvement of teaching quality in SEE”, a joint initiative of the University of Prishtina and University of Nuernberg (in 2005). She was also a member of an evaluating committee of the “Kosovar Mathematical Olympiad”, organized in Prishtina, in May 2010.
As a coordinator for Malteser, German NGO where she used to work in the period of 2000-2006, Mimoza managed different projects covering mainly women issues, with many international partners including UNHCR, Erzbistum Cologne, and German Government through Stability Pact.
In 2002, Mimoza served as a trainer for capacity building of a Women Network "QELIZA” in Gjakova, where even now days still volunteers as a consultant for the NGO Network QELIZA when needed.
Mimoza’s main areas of interest are: algebra, application of mathematics in different fields of life, improving the quality of teaching of Mathematics, and gender equality factor in preparation of the projects.
