Abdul Khaliq

Received a Ph.D. in Mathematics and M.Sc.  In Numerical Analysis from Brunel University, UK and M.Sc. in Mathematics from Quaid-i-Azam University, Pakistan. Dr. Khaliq’s area of expertise is numerical analysis and scientific computing, with specialization in the “Development of Stable and Efficient Numerical Methods for Large Scale Systems of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs).” His primary research interest lies at the interface of applied mathematics and computational science, which includes new and robust algorithms using partial differential equations with applications to complex financial and physical systems. In addition, his current research interest includes numerical solutions of Fractional Partial Differential Equations, scalable algorithms in the numerical solutions of stiff stochastic differential equations (SDEs).

During his 33 years of professional career at institutions of higher educations, Dr Khaliq has compiled a wide-ranging record of research and scholarly activities. He has organized international conferences and has presented research papers at international conferences as a keynote speaker, had a large number of published research articles in highly reputed refereed journals, and his research is frequently cited by the scientific community. He has supervised several PhD dissertations and MS theses.  Currently, he serves on the editorial boards of four international journals and is editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Computer Mathematics.  Dr Khaliq is currently serving as a Professor at the Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), USA. He was awarded the MTSU Distinguished Research Awards in 2007 and 2016, Western Illinois Outstanding Faculty Excellence Research University Award in 2002.
