Ram Ramaswamy

Teaching and Research, Research supervision
Ram Ramaswamy was faculty member at JNU and has transferred to Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi

Ram Ramaswamy’s research has, over the years, wandered between disciplines, the underlying theme being dynamics. The origin of chaotic motion and its characterisation have been a major interest, with diverse topics such as strange non-chaotic dynamics, synchronisation, and systems biology being some specific topics he has worked on.

He has published about 200 journal and book articles relating to chemical dynamics, classical and quantum chaos, semi-classical quantisation, disordered systems and statistical physics, molecular dynamics and cluster physics, computational biology and genomics.

Projects within the Big Data Project/ Supervised students within the Big Data Project/Anticipated projects

We are working on two projects. One is to use techniques such as reservoir computing to examine chaotic time series and examine forecasting. The second is to infer equations of motion from time series observations.
