Dr. S. Karthika, has over 11 years of teaching and 2 years of exclusive research experience in Social Networking and Machine Learning.


She received a B.E (CSE) degree from Avinashilingam University and completed her M.E (CSE) from Anna University. She has earned her Ph.D. degree under the Faculty of Information and Communication Engineering from Anna University.

During her Ph.D, she developed a system for key player identification using behavioural analysis in covert networks. The system used novel centrality based outlier analysis algorithm to recognize the influencers, and analysed the fragmentation and resilience of the covert network using graph theoretic approach. She carried her research work as Junior Research Fellow under UGC-BSR fellowship.


Her areas of research include key player analysis, text mining, privacy in online social network, rumour analysis, opinion mining and Social IoT. To her credit she has 10 refereed journals and 15 international conference publications.

She is a recognized supervisor of Anna University and currently guiding two full time research scholars. She also has a team of U.G and P.G students working in the area of SNA and Cyber Security.

As PI she has received three faculty funded projects from SSN Trust worth 10.25 Lakhs and as Co-PI has bagged a project under TNSCST worth 4.5 Lakhs. In the first project she analysed the covert network structure and node attribute information to improve performance of both the link prediction and the attribute inference problems. The second project analysed the behaviour of the user based on the sensitivity of the posted tweets. Presently, she is executing her third project in the area of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and the external funded project in IoT analytics.


She follows an activity and outcome based teaching methodology in the subjects like Database, Operating System and Data Warehousing and Data Mining.


She is a member of professional societies, including ACM, IEEE and ISTE. She is SSN-IEEE WIE Affinity group Student Branch Counselor. She is one of the active co-ordinators in the Cyber Security Working Group (CSWG) under the Department of IT.
