Faculty Profile
Swadesh Kumar Sahoo was born in Balasore, a city of Odisha (formerly known as Orissa), on 5th February 1978. In 2000, he obtained his Master's Degree in Mathematics from Utkal University in Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha). He received his Ph.D. degree from Indian Institute of Technology Madras in 2008. His Ph.D. thesis entitled “Inequalities and Geometry of Hyperbolic-type Metrics, Radius Problems, and Norm Estimates” was written under the supervision of Professor S. Ponnusamy, IIT Madras. The National Board for Higher Mathematics, Department of Atomic Energy, awarded him the NBHM Post-doctoral Fellowship in 2008. He did his post-doctoral research at IIT Madras using this fellowship before taking a job as an Assistant Professor at IIT Indore in September 2010. He was also a visiting researcher for three months in the University of Turku, Finland, supported by Centre for International Mobility (CIMO), in 2009. After joining IIT Indore, he has participated and delivered a series of invited talks at several scientific events held in India, Japan, China, United States, Ukraine, and Russia. His main research area is Geometric Function Theory and the current research interests include Univalent Function Theory, Special Functions, Hyperbolic-type Metrics, and Quasiconformal Mappings. He has been collaborating with researchers from India, Japan, China, United States, and Finland. He supervised six Ph.D. scholars, two M.Sc. students, and at present, he is supervising three more Ph.D. scholars. Currently, he is working as a Professor in the Department of Mathematics of IIT Indore. He was heading the Department of Mathematics from June 20, 2012 until September 24, 2015, and the School of Basic Sciences during April 3, 2015 - May 22, 2018. He was also given the responsibility of Dean, Administration at IIT Indore for the period from March 26, 2018 to December 31, 2019.
