Dr. Shobana Padmanabhan

Associate Professor


shobana.padmanabhan@alliance.edu.in

Dr. Shobana received her doctoral degree in Computer Science, and M.S. in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis, USA. Her undergraduate degree is from BITS, Pilani. She has about 15 years of experience in research, teaching, and industry.

Dr. Shobana’s research interests include optimization, parallel computing and high-performance computing. She is particularly interested in constrained non-linear optimization in discrete, continuous and mixed-integer spaces. Her teaching interests include student-centric active learning.

Dr. Shobana has published and presented papers in international conferences and journals.
