Meet this 14-year-old boy who is the world’s youngest professor

With an incredible knowledge of mathematics, 14-year-old Yasha Asley is the world’s youngest professor. Known as the human calculator, he is teaching at the University of Leicester while pursuing his own degree.

While most children of his age attend school and play in their free time, this young boy of Iranian descent is enriching young minds.

Yasha’s father, Moussa Asley, drops him to the university every day. He expresses how proud he is of his son, who has always had an interest in mathematics. Realising his son’s immense knowledge and potential, he approached the university.

Only 13 at the time, Yasha was contacted by the university, where the panel reviewing him was shocked at the extent of his knowledge. He was then appointed a professor at the university. His father now finds immense satisfaction in seeing his 14-year-old son teaching kids older than himself.

Yasha, who wishes to complete his degree and then pursue his PhD, says that the first time he met the panel, they asked him a variety of questions. When he answered all of them, they realised what an asset to the institution he could be.

Joining as a guest professor at the university at such a young age, he had to seek various permissions from the HRD department. Even when the permission letter was presented to the university’s council, they found it extremely hard to believe. However, once the council authorities met Yasha, they understood the contribution he could make to their university.

Yasha says that more than getting a job, it is contributing to the expansion of his students’ knowledge that gives him satisfaction.
