Research

RESEARCH INTEREST

Mathematical Modeling, Deep Learning, Probability, Applications in Medicine, Harmonic Analysis, Artificial Intelligence.

Dr. Rao joined at Augusta University in 2012. Prior to this he has teaching and research experience at Indian Statistical Institute, University of Oxford, Indian Institute of Science, University of Guelph. Until 2012, he held permanent faculty position at Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. Earlier he has won Heiwa-Nakajima Award (Japan) and DST Fast Track Young Scientists Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences (New Delhi). Dr. Rao jointly with Dr. James R. Carey (UC Davis/ UC Berkeley) has proved a fundamental result in stationary population models. See a report on Rao-Carey Fundamental Theorem at MBI, Ohio. Dr. Rao’s work has also featured as news in the Math Digest of the American Mathematical Society. Dr. Rao worked as a consultant for the World Bank and other international agencies and has contributed for policies in epidemics such as AIDS, Avian Influenza, Swine Flu.
