Ramesh VENKADACHALAM

My goal in life is to become an eminent Researcher and Teacher. I am a Mathematician interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science namely computing and complexity theory. I teach Algebra, Linear Algebra, Analysis, Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Algorithms, Logic and Applied Statistics.

In most sciences one generation tears down what another has built, and what one has established another undoes. In mathematics alone each generation adds a new story to the old structure. - Hermann Hankel - German Mathematician (1838-1873)

Research: In line with Hankel's above proposition, I strongly believe that the future of mathematics will be influenced by the concepts and issues arising in computer science. A strong mathematical orientation is necessary to solve the key challenges in computer sciences. Am more interested in developing theories around issues arising in computer sciences. I hope this gives a broad overview of my research interest. Please visit our lab for further information.

Teaching is a very interesting and a challenging job to do. Its interesting because we get to understand how our ideas are being perceived by the students. Given the mass and diversity of the students in the class it is a challenge to be an effective communicator. My idea on Pedagogy is that teacher should aim to bring the learning process into the student's life. I spend a good amount of my time to device a effective teaching methodology.  I have the following two propositions on teaching,
  1. If x knows how he/she is perceived by the crowd then x is a good teacher
  2. A good teacher has to be a good researcher.

Am intentionally not quantifying the word good here and the converse of these statements. I leave it to people to perceive as they wish. :-). Please do visit our pedagogical initiative nurture for further information.

Am currently working as an assistant professor in School of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, Central University of Tamil Nadu. Prior to this role, I worked as a research analyst for General Electric Global Research for about five years. 

 My areas of Interest are:

  • Algorithms & Complexity theory
  • Number Theory and hence Algebra
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Pedagogy
  • Identifying emerging technologies

If you have similar interest in life and wanna chat with me, feel free to drop in through vpramesh@gmail.com. reply to emails within 24 hours. 

I hide myself intentionally from online media technologies to involve myself in a few other interesting hobbies. However I reply to the post within a week in online media. :-)
