About the Faculty Member

Danish A. Ahmed is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. He completed a Masters (MSci) in Mathematics from Imperial College London, UK (2009) and a doctorate (PhD) at University of Leicester, UK (2015). He teaches both core and specialised mathematics related courses at GUST, such as Probability & Statistics, Linear Algebra, Analytic Geometry, Calculus, Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis. His research background is primarily in Mathematical Biology, along four distinct research streams: Population Dynamics, Mathematical Ecology, Biological Invasions and Infectious Diseases. Currently he is working on: (i) Random walk models of animal movement with the Mathematical Ecology Research Groups at University of Leicester (UK) and University of Oxford (UK), (ii) Economic costs of biological invasions with the BioM research group at Université Paris-Saclay (France), and (iii) Population dynamics of mud snails (Potamopyrgus antipodarum) and killer shrimps (Dikerogammarus villosus) on a European scale.
