Dr. Mishra joined ABV-IIITM Gwalior in July 2023 as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Engineering Sciences.  With over 3.5 years of postdoctoral experience from prestigious global universities, he brings a wealth of knowledge to his role. Dr. Mishra’s research specializes in mathematical modeling of natural systems, particularly in the realm of life sciences. His expertise lies in the realm of dynamical systems modeling, through which he delves into sustainability issues intertwined with ecology and the environment. He is passionate about exploring the fascinating chemotaxis phenomenon observed in ecological species interactions through the mathematical models. Mathematical models of his interest concern the study of differential equations (ODE, PDE & Stochastic), such as their large time behavior, stability, and bifurcation of solutions and their links with real-world systems, as well as numerical simulations to approximate their solutions.
