PERSONAL DETAILS
BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Elayaraja Aruchunan started his career at Curtin University Malaysia in March 2008. Based on his excellent track record in research, he was awarded a full scholarship by the Australian Government to pursue his Ph.D. in 2012. Upon completing his Ph.D., he worked as an academic at Curtin University in Australia. He then joined the University of Malaya in November 2020 under the Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He has vast experience in numerical analysis, computational applied mathematics, and computational statistics for the past 12 years. He is currently working on hybrid algorithms for solving various complex scientific, engineering, and industrial mathematical models. He is also working on plastic waste solutions using machine learning analysis.
