Our great professors Prof. T A Satagopan, Prof P C Joseph, Prof O C Kuriakose and Prof S Abraham were gifted teachers with research aptitude.

Prof  T A Satagopan was instrumental in making a hand written copy of Ramanujan’s Note Books and sending them to the famous mathematician G H Hardy (Ref: Ramanujan: Letters and Commentary, AMS).

Throughout his teaching career Prof P C Joseph was immersed in exploring new vistas of knowledge. One of his research papers was published in the prestigious journal, American Mathematical Monthly. He was one of the founding members of Kerala Mathematical Association.

Prof O C Kuriakose belongs to a class of his own. As a scholar and teacher of Mathematics, he has few parallels. He has his own philosophy of Mathematics. His speeches and writings are erudite discourses which open up new vistas of mathematical knowledge.

Prof S. Abraham is a living legend, who has given notable contributions to statistics. He authored several books on Mathematical Economics, Statistics and Genetics. He was also the president of K M A.

Later a major contribution to the field of Mathematics research was given by Prof V A Sebastian in the area of Functional Theoretical Algebra. He also studied vector spaces of continuous curves and introduced a concept called n-curving. He has published 4 research papers and a book entitled “Book of Beautiful Curves”.

Dr. Joseph Mathews became the first Ph. D holder (University of Kerala) of the Department and his area of Research is convexity in Graph Theory. He has published 8 research papers in National /International journals. Through him our department got an opportunity to become a part of the Indo Slovenian Joint Research Project with Dr. Manoj Changat (Prof and Head, Department of Futures Studies, University of Kerala) as the principal investigator from Indian side.  In May 2008, he visited university of Maribor and university of Lubljana. Thanks to, Dr. Joseph Mathews, who ignited the research culture in the department.


In 2010, Dr. Antony Mathews secured Ph. D. from the University of Kerala for his thesis titled “Studies in Transit Functions on Posets and its Underlying Graphs, namely, the Cover-incomparability Graphs”, has published 4 research papers and was also a member in the Indo Slovenian Joint Research Project.

In the same year, Rev. Dr. Gigi Thomas secured Ph. D. from the University of Botswana in the area of Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases and has published 5 research papers.

In 2012, Dr. Shine C Mathew secured Ph. D. from the University of Kerala for the thesis titled “A Study on Graphs Associated with a Commutative Ring”. He has published 3 research papers and presented 2 in National Seminars.

In 2013, Dr. Ullas Thomas secured Ph. D. from M.G.Univeristy Kottayam for the thesis titled “A Study on Topological Set-indexers of Graphs”. He has published 11 papers so far and presented 2 in National Conferences.

Dr. K Rajan who retired in the year 2012 has completed his research and secured Ph. D. in 2014 from M.G.University Kottayam for his study on Genetic Algorithms.

Mr. Tibin Thomas is pursuing research in Toplogical Fluid Dynamics, has published one research paper and communicated one.

Our teachers encourage discussions and presentations leading to research and motivate students to participate in various outreach and training programmes of other research institutions.  Our alumni have contributed significantly in the field of Mathematics research and many are actively engaged.

We hope that our department will become an approved research center of the Mahatma Gandhi University in the near future.
