Dr. Smita Sood
Assistant Professor: Mathematics
Smita’s expertise is in the area of special functions, more specifically Mock Theta Functions. Mock Theta Functions are Ramanujan’s last mathematical creation, which he discovered during the last years of his life.
Apart from her work in the area of Mock Theta Functions, an interesting work that she has pursued is the new method she proposed for finding an initial basic feasible solution of a transportation problem. She has also worked on various areas like predictive analytics.
Prior to taking up the current role in 2014, Smita Sood was a Senior Lecturer at Amity University (Noida) and before that she was an Assistant Professor at KIIT College of Engineering, a private college affiliated to Maharishi Dayanand University. She has more than 13 years of teaching experience. She has extensive experience of teaching various courses such as Engineering Mathematics, Statistics and Probability Theory, Discrete Mathematics, Numerical Methods, Operations Research and Real Analysis. She has also taught postgraduate courses.
Smita earned her PhD from Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak; M. Phil in Mathematics from the University of Delhi; M.Sc. in Mathematics from the IIT Delhi; and B.Sc. (Hons)(Mathematics) from Acharya Narendra Dev College, Delhi University. She has qualified CSIR-UGC NET and cleared GATE Examination.

Consultancies (from 2015)
‘Multivariate analysis as tool in groundwater quality assessment of Mewat district’ funded by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
Smita Sood is currently working on a project sanctioned by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India for a period of three years. The project emphasizes the analysis of groundwater quality of Mewat district using various multivariate techniques. Multivariate techniques are used as unbiased methods for the analysis of water quality data to draw meaningful conclusions, and multivariate statistical methods are employed to extract significant information from hydro chemical datasets in compound systems.
