Dr. Tufail Malik obtained his PhD in Mathematics from Arizona State University. Prior to joining Khalifa University, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Departments of Mathematics and Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba (Canada). His research focus is mathematical models of infectious diseases, namely Human Papillomavirus, H1N1, West Nile Virus and Hepatitis C among others, to analyze control mechanisms (such as vaccination and quarantine). He is also interested in the assessment of the utility of syndromic surveillance systems to monitor disease activity and detect a potential public health peril. In addition he is interested in optimal control environmental-economic and health-capital models in relation with energy management, aimed at sustainable growth. Dr. Malik has received teaching awards from Ohio University (USA) and Arizona State University (USA), and a graduate student research award from Arizona State University (USA).
