My main areas of research are ordinary and partial differential equations. My primary focuses are in the study of impulsive differential equations, reaction diffusion equations, differential equations with delay, integro-differential equations, singular systems and its applications. We develop numerical iterative procedures (yielding faster convergence) for the computation of solutions. Lyapunov stability theory, and stability in terms of two measures for large scale dynamical systems are my other major interests.
