Dr Levis K. Eneya Staff Profile

Senior Lecturer in Mathematics

PhD (HU-Berlin, Germany), MSc. & BEd. (UNIMA)

Levis Eneya is a senior lecturer in mathematics. He obtained Ph.D in Mathematics from the Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany in 2010. He is currently serving as Dean of the Faculty of Science, besides his teaching duties in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Before becoming Dean of Faculty in January 2015, Dr. Eneya was Deputy Head, then Head of Mathematical Sciences Department, and Deputy Dean of Faculty. He also served as President of the Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association (SAMSA) from 2012 - 2014.

Apart from undergraduate programmes, Dr. Eneya has been involved in postgraduate programmes including MSc (Biostatics) where he lectures Modelling of Infectious Diseases; and MSc (Mathematics) where he lectures Nonlinear Optimization and Computational Partial Differential Equations. Dr. Eneya's fields of research interest are optimisation, mathematical modelling, and strengthening mathematics teaching and learning through problem solving. He has worked on developing efficient optimization methods for minimizing energy functionals; infectious diseases modelling; and he is currently working on transport optimization and logistics in value chain analysis, and optimization of transport networks in cities. He is also in a team of five, on a collaborative project “Improving Quality and Capacity of Mathematics Teacher Education in Malawi” between the University of Malawi and University of Stavanger in Norway, funded by NORAD (2014 - 2018).
