POOM KUMAM received the B.S., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from Burapha University (BUU), Chiang Mai University (CMU), and Naresuan University (NU), respectively. In 2008, he received a grant from Franco-Thai Cooperation for short-term visited at the Laboratoire de Mathematiques, Universite de Bretagne Occidentale, France. He was also a Visiting Professor for a short-term research with Professor Anthony To-Ming Lau at the University of Alberta, AB, Canada.
He is currently a Full Professor with the Department of Mathematics, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), where he is also the Head of the KMUTT Fixed Point Theory and Applications Research Group and the Theoretical and Computational Science Center (TaCS-Center) and also the Director of the Computational and Applied Science for Smart Innovation Cluster (CLASSIC Research Cluster). He has successfully advised 5 master’s, and 44 Ph.D. graduates.
He has been Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher since 2015,2016, 2017 and 2022. He has also been listed and ranked in the Twelfth Place in General Mathematics among the Top 2% Scientists in the World 2020 (Published by Stanford University in USA). In 2021, Professor Poom Kumam one of the leading professors of applied mathematics in Thailand who work at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), has been ranked as the Mathematics Best Scientist in Thailand (Number 1 Mathematician in Thailand) according to the 2021 Alper-Doger Scientific Index (also known as AD Scientific Index). Furthermore, the AD Scientific Index also ranked professor Kumam as the Natural Science Best Scientist in King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi and number 6 in Thailand. He has also been listed and ranked in the 241th Place in General Mathematics among the Top 2% Scientists in the World 2020 (Published by Stanford University in USA).
