I lead a Laboratory for Theory and Mathematical Modeling and awarded a tenured Full Professor within the Medical College of Georgia, and hold joint appointment with the College of Science and Mathematics, Augusta University. Previously, conducted research and/or taught at Indian Statistical Institute (1998-2002, 2006-2012), Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford (2003, 2005-07), Indian Institute of Science (2002-04), University of Guelph (2004-06). Until 2012, held permanent faculty position at Indian Statistical Institute. Won Heiwa-Nakajima Award (Japan) and Fast Track Young Scientists Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences (DST, New Delhi).

Jointly with Dr. James R. Carey (UC Davis/ UC Berkeley), I have proved a fundamental theorem in stationary population models. See a report on Rao-Carey Fundamental Theorem at MBI, Ohio. A news article on my work appeared in the Math Digest, American Mathematical Society’s Math in the Media, AMSTAT News.  A report on my research with Dr. Philip K. Maini (Oxford) is listed as an impact case study in the Research Excellence Network, U.K. (see REF2014 for the University of Oxford). For my papers, see MathSciNet and Web of Science. Earlier, worked as a consultant for the World Bank and other international agencies. For other details please browse from the adjacent links provided. Served as a member of the Scientific Committee and Organizing Committee for the SMB2015, Atlanta, The Annual Meetings of the Society for Mathematical Biology. Currently leading coeditor for Elsevier’s book series Handbook of Statistics whose series editor is famous statistician Dr. C.R. Rao, SUNY Buffalo.

National Policies: Our Mathematical Modeling results of HIV spread in India has contributed for national AIDS policies under the Ministry of Health, India which assisted in eleventh planning (2007-12) and Modeling Anti-retroviral Therapy has contributed for twelfth planning (2012-17). We have also contributed for national bird flu, swine flu modeling outputs. Dr. Rao is currently a member of the committee to model the blood requirement in India formulated by the Government. 

 I am the Principal Investigator for the Laboratory for Theory and Mathematical Modeling within the Division of Infectious Diseases, Medical College of Georgia.

Administration: Dr. Rao currently an elected AU Senator to represent Medical College of Georgia at the Augusta University for the period 2017-2019. He is also currently serving the Athletics Committee and Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Committee of the University.
