Research Interests

Dr. Srilatha P currently working with Bio-Inspired Optimization algorithms to solve the link prediction problem in social networks. She worked on various similarity based metrics to find out the structural similarity of the various complex networks to predict the unknown links. In order to reduce the computational cost of the similarity based techniques, she analyzed various meta heuristics algorithms and implemented Firefly algorithm to solve the link prediction problem in complex networks. She also implemented variants of Firefly algorithm by considering both the structural and attributes of the network under consideration. Currently, she is exploring performance of randomized control parameters to improve the performance of metaheuristics algorithms in the area of deep neural networks.

Teaching Interests

Dr. Srilatha P has taught courses for UG and PG Programmes especially her teaching interests include programming in C and Python, Compilers, Data Structures and Machine Learning.
