Welcome to Dr. Mansoor Haider’s webpage at North Carolina State University. I am a Professor in the NCSU Department of Mathematics and the Biomathematics graduate program. I also currently serve as Director of the Foundations in Data Science MS Program. Previously, I have served as Director of Graduate Programs in NCSU Mathematics (2012-2016) and as an Associate Director at the Statistical & Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (2018-2021).
My research expertise is in applied and computational mathematics, with a focus on applications in the life sciences and public health. A longstanding theme in my research is mathematical modeling of biological soft tissues in the contexts of tissue biomechanics, mechanobiology, regenerative medicine and biomedical imaging. A more recent research theme is the development of tailored unsupervised matching learning algorithms for public health applications. Technical areas of expertise include continuum mechanics (nonlinear elasticity, viscoelasticity, multiphase mixtures), applied partial differential equations, numerical methods for PDEs (BEM, FEM, finite difference methods), methods for data-driven mathematical modeling, and algorithms for data clustering.
My educational interests include best practices for inclusive graduate training in the mathematical sciences, distance learning and effective use of technology in the classroom.
