Prof Jacek Banasiak holds the DST/NRF SARChI Chair in Mathematical Models and Methods in Biosciences and Bioengineering. His research interests include integro-differential models in kinetic theory, mathematical biology and fragmentation-coagulation theory, asymptotic analysis of multiple scale problems, asymptotics of dynamical systems on networks, structured population dynamics.
Prof José A. Carrillo currently holds a Chair in Applied and Numerical Analysis at Imperial College London. His research field is Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). The modelling based on PDEs, their mathematical analysis, the numerical schemes, and their simulation in applications are his general topics of research. His expertise comprises long-time asymptotics, qualitative properties and numerical schemes for nonlinear diffusion, hydrodynamic, and kinetic equations in the modelling of collective behaviour of many-body systems such as rarefied gases, granular media, charge particle transport in semiconductors, or cell movement by chemotaxis.
