Research Interests
Dr. Thulasiraman's research interest is in high performance graph analytics for big data in real world applications. Her research focuses on modelling these problems as graphs and using nature inspired-computing techniques to solve some of the challenging issues in these irregular problems. She then design, develop scalable, parallel algorithms for efficient implementation and in-depth performance analysis on futuristic hybrid heterogeneous multi-core architectures. Her current research interests include developing distributed algorithms for dynamic network problems such as mobile ad hoc and vehicular networks and Cloud using swarm intelligence techniques.

Students: High Quality Personnel My research would not be successful without my students. I have trained undergraduate students, graduate (MSc and PhD) thesis and course-based MSc students. For more information, please see here.
Publications My area of research spans in high performance computing and swarm intelligence techniques. Please see here for more details on my publications in these two areas.
Professional Activities I am very active in my professional community-organizing conferences, editorial board, technical program committee member for conferences, reviewer for journals, and other professional activities.
Teaching I have taught a variety of courses at all levels: service level, first year, second year, third year, fourth year undergraduate courses and graduate level courses. I have taught both theoretical and applied courses at all levels. Full listings of courses are provided here.
