Dr Gangan Prathap has joined at CSIR-NIIST as Outstanding Scientist on 16 August 2013. He was trained as an aerospace engineer and specialized in mathematical modeling and computer simulation of complex problems in aerospace engineering. For more than thirty years, he has also pursued a parallel interest in research evaluation, bibliometrics and scientometrics and the application of physical and mathematical insights for research assessment. In recent years, he has proposed a thermodynamic basis for bibliometric sequences which can lead to better indicators for research evaluation like the p-index and the EEE-sequences. He has served at many premier institutions in India like the CSIR-NAL, CSIR-C-MMACS (now CSIR 4PI), CUSAT, and CSIR-NISCAIR.
