Dr Azhar Iqbal
To link to this page, please use the following URL: Biography/ BackgroundI am an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University of Adelaide. I migrated to Australia to join the University of Adelaide in 2007 and became an Australian citizen in 2012. Before receiving my PhD in 2006 I worked for several years in the area of lasers and optics in Pakistan. During 20062007 I was with the National University of Sciences & Technology, Pakistan, and with the Kochi University of Technology, Japan. During 20072012 I was with the University of Adelaide on a prestigious research fellowship from the Australian Research Council. During 20132014 I accepted a fixedterm academic position at the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Saudi Arabia. I returned to the University of Adelaide in mid2014. My CV is at the link below. QualificationsI hold a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Hull, UK, and a BSc (Hons) in Physics from the University of Sheffield, UK. Awards & Achievements
Teaching InterestsI was a tutor for Electronics Systems (Level 1), Electronics Circuits M (Level 2), and Electronics (Level 2) in first semester 2016; a guest lecturer for Avionics Sensors & Systems (Level4) in second semester 2014; and a guest lecturer for Communications (Level 4) in first semester 2012, all at the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University of Adelaide. Between Jan 2013 and May 2014, while being with the King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Saudi Arabia, I taught Methods of Applied Mathematics (Level 3) four times and Elements of Differential Equations (Level 2) twice. While being with the National University of Sciences & Technology, Pakistan, during JulyNov 2006, I taught Mathematical Methods of Quantum Mechanics (Level 4). Research Interests
I have interdisciplinary research interests. Most of my published research is in the growing research area of quantum game theory. I have also published in the areas of geometric algebra, quantum computation/information, electromagnetics, networks, memristors, and mathematical modelling. My recent research interests include games of asymmetric information, developing an improved understanding of cancerimmune dynamics using game theory, developing game theoretical models of immigration and assimilation, and models of quantum games without Hilbert space.
