Bio

Born, brought up and settled as Coimbatorean, Dr. Latha Parameswaran joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Coimbatore campus of Amrita Vishwa Vidhyapeetham in 1999. She is currently the professor and Chairperson of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. She was in the software industry for ten years prior to joining Amrita. She completed her Master’s Degree from PSG College of Technology and her  Ph. D. from Bharathiar University. Her Ph.D. thesis titled “Digital Watermarking for Image Security” was highly commended by the experts. Her areas of research include Image Processing, Information Retrieval, Image Mining, Information Security and Theoretical Computer Science.

She has published papers in international journals and at conferences where she has won several Best Paper Awards.  She has also authored a chapter in a book published by the Idea Group.

In addition to teaching and serving as Chair of the CSE department, she is currently guiding  Ph. D. research scholars in Amrita, Bharathiar and Anna Universities. She is in the doctoral committee for many Ph. D. scholars in various Universities. She is also a member in Board of Studies at various premier academic institutions in India. She also holds positions in academic council in premier institutions. She is in the faculty recruitment board, faculty appraisal committee, funded project review committee, recommendations for infrastructure setting up committee at various institutions.

She also works on projects funded by DST. Her Special Interests include encouraging more and more women in to work in Engineering, Technology and Computing.  Also she conducts workshops for school children in the classes 8-12 to encourage them to pursue computer science as their field of study. In connection with this she has conducted two conferences on Women in Computing at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in 2010 and 2013. The next in this series is planned in 2016.
