Srini Venkatramanan Headshot
Research Scientist, Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing


Srinivasan (Srini) Venkatramanan is a research scientist at the Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing division. Prior to joining University of Virginia in 2018, Venkatramanan did his postdoctoral research at the Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory, Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech (2015-2017), where he also worked as a Computational Health Data Scientist (2017-2018). He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science in 2014 for his dissertation titled "Influence Dynamics on Social Networks". Venkatramanan’s research areas include stochastic modeling, diffusion dynamics, optimal control and network science. At the Biocomplexity Institute, he is responsible for developing, analyzing and optimizing computational models for complex systems arising in the domains of epidemiology and food security.
