Brief Profile
T. Robinson has been on the teaching faculty of the Department of Mathematics since 1987. He received the Ph.D degree from University of Madras in 2001. He has authoured or co-authoured research papers in his fields of interest which include Map systems, Patterns and Picture languages (of Formal language theory), Tactile Geometry (of Special needs education), Universal tool design (of Disability science) and Bio-Inspired Computing. During 2002 – 2007, under the DST- JSPS programme he visited Institute of Disability Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Japan for research on disability science and received Ph.D degree in 2007. He is the recipient of “National Award” by Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, Government of India (for ‘Adaptation to provide cost-effective technology’ in the field of welfare of persons with disabilities’). He was the Leverhulme Trust visiting research fellow at Department of Computer Science, Liverpool Hope University, UK during 2009 - 2010.
