Bio

Dr. Rao is a Professor and Director at the Laboratory for Theory and Mathematical Modeling, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta University. Until 2012, he held a permanent faculty position at Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. He had taught and/or performed research at several premier institutions including, the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), University of Oxford (Oxford, UK), the Indian Institute of Science (Bengaluru, India), and the University of Guelph, (Guelph, Canada) prior to his arrival at Augusta University.

Dr. Rao developed the first AI model for the identification of COVID-19 through apps. His recent works on partition theorem in populations, Chicken-walk models, Rao's Partition Theorem in Populations, and Rao-Carey Fundamental Theorem in stationary populations, Multilevel Contours, and Bundles of Complex Planes are well received.
