Adnan Khan was awarded his Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in NY in 2007. His thesis was titled 'Parameterization for Some Multiscale Problems in Biology and Turbulence'. The work involved studying approaches to coarse graining of multiscale systems with applications to turbulent diffusion and protein dynamics. Prior to his doctoral work he obtained an MS in Applied Mathematics at the University of Delaware in 2002 and a BE in Electrical Engineering from NED University of Engineering & Technology, Karachi in 1998. His current research interests involve modeling and analysis of biological systems, multiscale modeling and asymptotic analysis. Prior to joining LUMS he has taught at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and University of Delaware. Besides the usual academic interests he is also interested in reading on economics, philosophy, history and world literature.
