Academic Research:









 Active in two areas:

1.    Spectral Analysis of unbounded operators.
This is an aspect of pure mathematics concerned with understanding of operators (mainly differential and integral) that do arise naturally in modelling, quantum physics and many natural problem setting. He has on-going research projects and has published extensively in this area. Currently he has two PhD students in this area alone. He also has two other PhD students in other related fields.

2.    Component Based Software Engineering
It is a well-known fact that software in use fall far short of the demand for it. Well known paradigms in software production like procedure oriented and object oriented programming have brought about accelerated software production from the state we were in the 1980s. However the production rates are still not satisfactory hence the new paradigm shift to component based approach. These moves will radically change the software industry and at the moment researchers are dealing with the emerging issues. The approach has already been deployed by companies like Microsoft in some of their latest products. His research work here has been concentrated on change management.
