Education Mathematics (Arizona State University, USA) PhD (2007) Supervisor: Hal Smith Mathematics with computer science option (Ohio University, USA) M.S. (2002) Mathematics (Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan) M.Sc. (1994) Research Interests My main research interest is in Epidemiology. I design and rigorously analyze robust mathematical models Mathematical Biology based on nonlinear ordinary, partial, and stochastic diﬀerential equations to study the transmission dynamics and control mechanisms (such as vaccination and quarantine) of diseases of public health signiﬁcance.
Microbial quiescence, syndromic surveillance systems, and photoacclimation in phytoplankton are my other areas of research interest.
I am interested in the interactions between population dynamics, public health, technological change, energy Environmental- Economic management, environmental quality and economic growth. In addition to dynamic optimal-control models, Models I use multi-criteria decision analysis models (including polynomial and fuzzy goal-programming models) in order to assist decision makers for strategic planning and investment allocations towards sustainable development.
