Dr. Anoop Sivasankaran earned his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Glasgow Caledonian University, UK, in 2010, following the completion of his MSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
Dr. Sivasankaran’s current research is in the area of dynamical systems with particular emphasis on collisional singularities and regularization theory, chaos and stability in planetary or multi stellar systems, topological behaviors of dynamical systems, fast chaos detection methods and multi-dimensional Poincaré mapping. Dr. Sivasankaran is also pursuing several other avenues of interdisciplinary research ranging from operational research to mathematical modeling of nonlinear orthotropic rubber.
Prior to joining the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (KUSTAR), which became a part of the Khalifa University of Science and Technology in 2017, Dr. Sivasankaran worked as decision analytic modeler with Peninsula Technology Assessment Group (PenTAG) at the University of Exeter and Plymouth, where he focused on assessing the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of health technologies using mathematical models. Methodological applications of this work included modeling costs and benefits for patients over the expected lifetime of the technology, future changes in drug prices, and application of survival analysis.
