Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematics

Dr. Anoop Sivasankaran received his MSc in Applied Mathematics in 2005 from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and his Ph.D. in the same field from the University of Glasgow Caledonian, UK. Dr. Sivasankaran’s current research is in the area of orbital dynamics with particular emphasis on collisional singularities and regularization algorithms, chaos and stability in planetary or multi stellar systems, topological behaviors of dynamical systems, fast chaos detection methods, and multi-dimensional Poincare mapping.

Prior to joining Khalifa University, Dr. Sivasankaran worked as decision analytic modeler with a Technology Assessment Group PENTAG (University of Exeter and Plymouth), assessing the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health technologies using mathematical models.
