Prof. Dr. Hadi Susanto

Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Abu Dhabi

University of Essex, UK

Hadi Susanto was born and grew up in Lumajang, East Java province of Indonesia. He was an undergraduate student (B.Sc. 2001) in the Department of Mathematics of Institut Teknologi Bandung, with a thesis study supervised by Barbera van de Fliert and Edy Soewono. He subsequently did his postgraduate studies (M.Sc. 2003, Ph.D. 2006) in the Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Twente under the supervision of Stephan van Gils. He was Visiting Assistant Professor (2005-2007) at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst mentored by Panos Kevrekidis. He was then Lecturer in Applied Mathematics (2008-2013) at the School of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Nottingham. In 2013, he moved to the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Essex as Senior Lecturer and then Professor of Applied Mathematics. He is currently on-leave from Essex and is Professor at the Department of Mathematics of Khalifa University. He is also Adjunct Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Institut Teknologi Bandung. His research interests are in theoretical and computational dynamical systems and analysis applied to the study of, among others, nonlinear waves in differential equations that model physical reality in many different fields, including biology, condensed matter physics and nonlinear optics. He also enjoys writing literature, including poetry, prose and essay.
