About Sever Dragomir

Professor Sever Dragomir has an internationally recognised research track record in Theory of Inequalities, Approximation Theory, Mathematical Analysis, Information Theory, Numerical Analysis, Functional Analysis and Operator Theory. He has more than 1,080 journal articles published in prestigious journal in these fields. He is also the author of 12 books and the editor of other 10 books. These are accredited by the Mathematical Reviews of the American Mathematical Society and can be viewed in the database MathSciNet.

As shown by Google Scholar, his work has a significant impact in these fields by attracting numerous citations, currently over 22,200 with an h-index of 69 and i10-index of 435.

His work in the last 10 year played a key role in the ERA assessment for 2015 and 2018 where VU received a rating of 4 (above world standard) in Applied Mathematics (FoR 0102) and the same ranking of 4 in Mathematical Sciences (FoR 01).

His published work is also profiled by Microsoft Academics and Research Gate.

Sever was the Principal supervisor of PhD students Dr Eder Kikianty (graduated 2011, won the VC pick award and Medal) and Dr Alawiah Ibrahim (graduated 2014, won the VC Medal). He supervised Dr Jayson A. Grant (graduated 2014) and was the principal supervisor of Dr. G. Hanna (graduated 2008, won VC Medal) and Dr F. Cirstea (graduated 2005, won VC pick award), currently an Associate Professor in the School of Mathematics at Sydney University.

At the beginning of his appointment as a Chair in Mathematical Inequalities at VU, Sever founded in 1998 the Research Group in Mathematical Inequalities and Applications (RGMIA) that is comprised of more than 1,300 academics and researchers from Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. The aims of the group are to disseminate results via publication in electronic form and conferences, create an awareness of the theory of inequalities and support seminars and visiting academics, illustrate the applicability of inequalities in the sciences, for example, in numerical analysis (including quadrature and integral equations), statistics, probability and information theory.

In 2004 Sever founded, as Editor in Chief, the Australian Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications (AJMAA) that accepts high quality research papers in all areas of Mathematical Analysis and its numerous applications. The journal is reviewed by Mathematical Reviews (in USA), Zentralblatt für Mathematik (in Europe) and Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, and is covered by SCOPUS and SCIMAGO from 2008.

As an international recognition for his work, Sever was also appointed in the Editorial Board of more than 30 prestigious international journals in the field of Mathematical Analysis and Applications.
