Muruhan Rathinam joined UMBC in the fall of 2002. His broad research interests encompass the study of nonlinear dynamical systems in many forms (deterministic/stochastic, controlled/uncontrolled) and their numerical approximation. His current research particularly focuses on two application areas: stochastic chemical kinetics and stochastic models in financial markets.

Muruhan Rathinam holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Caltech. His thesis research was concerned with the application of differential geometry to characterize certain properties of nonlinear control systems. He has held postdoctoral positions at Caltech (1997-1999) and at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) (1999-2002). During his stay at UCSB he mostly worked on reduced order modeling of large scale systems of ODEs and during the last year of his stay at UCSB he embarked on his current research area of stochastic chemical kinetics.
