Mehar Ali Malik

Assistant Professor

I received B.Sc. 4-years degree with major subject mathematics from Government College University (GCU), Lahore, Pakistan, in 2009, and the M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics with specialization in Graph Theory from National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan in 2012 and 2019, respectively. My research interests include several areas from Graph Theory and Combinatorics with a focus on distances in graphs, graph products and extremal graph theory. From the past few years, I am engaged with the following problems. • Graph-based cryptographic methods • Applications of graph theory in brain science by neuroimaging and statistics • Neural/complex networks and community detection • Cops and robbers type games on graphs • Solution of Erdos-Sos conjecture • Defensive and offensive alliances in graphs and graph security • Domination in graphs and hypergraphs • Combinatorial designs of graphs • Extremal graphs with fixed graph parameters
