Amitabha Bose, PhD, is a professor in the department of mathematical sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology. His primary research interests are in the area of dynamical systems with a specialty in geometric singular perturbation analysis of problems in mathematical neuroscience. He is particularly interested in how synaptic plasticity in neuronal networks affects the control of rhythmic oscillations.
Bose joined NJIT in 1996 as assistant professor, was promoted to associate professor and awarded tenure in 2001 and promoted to professor in 2005. He served on the faculty at Boston University and at the Polytechnic Preparatory School in Brooklyn before coming to NJIT.
He is an accomplished scholar and a recognized leader who has significantly affected the development of the research and education agendas for his department. He has served on various department and institute committees including the Undergraduate Curriculum Review Committee. His teaching is exceptional, for which he has been designated a Master Teacher. He has also started an undergraduate training program to inspire young mathematicians to become interested in biological programs and young biologists to recognize the usefulness of mathematical approaches to their field.
He received his PhD in 1994 from Brown University.
