Dr. Oluwaseun Sharomi received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Manitoba, Canada, in 2010. He joined the Numerical Simulation Laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, in December 2010 as a postdoctoral researcher and in 2011, he received a PIMS postdoctoral fellowship award at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, in the Department of Computer Sciences to work on designing an efficient algorithm for the numerical simulation of electrical activity in the heart.

Dr. Sharomi’s paper titled “Re-infection-induced backward bifurcation in the transmission dynamics of Chlamydia trachomatis” was published in the Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications and was listed among the Top 25 Hottest Articles for April-June, 2009.

Dr. Sharomi’s expertise includes design and analysis of mathematical models of infectious diseases, simulation of electrical activity in myocardial tissue, parallel computing, problem solving environment, numerical algorithms and software for exascale computer architectures.

Dr. Sharomi is an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Sciences at the Khalifa University of Science and Technology.
