Biswarup Biswas

Assistant Professor Department of Mathematics

Dr. Biswarup Biswas currently works as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Mahindra University. Before joining MU, he was a Post Doctoral Fellow at IIT Delhi, where he worked with Dr Harish Kumar. He earned his PhD from SRM Institute of Science and Technology, where his thesis title was Non Linearly Stable High Order Accurate Efficient Schemes for System of Hyperbolic Conservation Laws. He completed his MSc from IIT Madras.

He works in the area of computational methods for Balance Laws. Most of his PhD works are in the area of higher-order provably stable methods for hyperbolic conservation laws. Currently, he is working on stable schemes for various astrophysical problems.

Some of his current interests are Entropy Stable schemes, DG schemes, Stability of numerical schemes for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws, Deep learning, Numerical schemes for Hamilton Jacobi equations.
