Murad is a senior lecturer in Mathematics. He holds a PhD from Queen Mary, University of London, specialising in geometric approaches to dynamical systems, including bifurcation theory. Beginning with work on systems of coupled oscillators, he has worked on a variety of problems at the interface between dynamical systems, analysis and combinatorics, with applications to real-world systems with network structure, including in biology and chemistry. He has published extensively on the abstract (parameter free) theory of chemical reaction networks, on the theory of monotone dynamical systems, and on various themes in linear/multilinear algebra and combinatorics.
Murad has taught across the BSc/MMath mathematics curriculum including real and complex analysis, dynamical systems, multivariate calculus, linear algebra and various areas of combinatorics and applied mathematics.
