Short resume: 

E Ticha Muluh is a senior Mathematics lecturer at the Cape Peninsula University of Cape Town (CPUT) and a visiting Academic at the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa. He has a diverse academic background. He received a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, a Master degree in Applied Sciences in Engineering, and an honors degree in Applied Mathematics from UCT. He also holds a first degree in Mathematics from the University of Buea – Cameroon.

His research interest is on how the brain process simple arithmetical problems mentally. He is particularly interested in characterizing brain electrical activity of the numerical modality effect (i.e., the differential encoding/processing of problems presented in different formats); the   problem-size effect (i.e., the phenomenon where it takes longer to respond to problems with large operand compared to problems with small operands); and the arithmetic-operation effect ( i.e., the differential processing of addition, multiplication, subtraction and division problems). He uses the surface electroencephalography (EEG) method in this endeavor. EEG records tiny electrical voltages on the scalp and this offers a way of monitoring brain activity in real time and thereby tracking any transitions that parallel changes during mental arithmetic processing (MAP). He is also currently interested in the source re-construction (localization) of brain activity during MAP using the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method.

He personally enjoys watching soccer and listening to gospel music.
