Research

Basically, my research is classified into three main categories:

  • Theoretical Biological Control
  • Mathematical Bio-economics
  • Bio-geochemical Modelling of Lagoon Ecosystems

Theoretical Biological Control

My research in Theoretical Biological Control involves developing mathematical models to study the predator-pest interactions and study the controllability aspects with applications to biological control. 

Mathematical Bio-economics

My research on Mathematical Bio-economics focusses on developing mathematical models to develop the control strategies and their economic aspects.

Lagoon Ecosystem Modelling

My research on Bio-geochemical modelling of lagoon ecosystem focuses on developing mathematical models to study the bio-geochemical events that are responsible for the changes occurring in the oxygen, nitrogen and carbon cycles of Lake ecosystems with special reference to Chilka Lake, India.
