Sridhar Radhakrishnan, Ph.D., is the interim associate dean for partnerships; professor and director in the School of Computer Science and professor and co-director of the Data Science and Analytics Institute. He joined OU in 1990.

He received his Ph.D. in computer science from Louisiana State University. Radhakrishnan’s research interests are in algorithm development and computer networks. His work has resulted in many protocol development for broadband networks, wireless and mobile networks, and RFID Systems. He is currently working on the development of protocols at the intersection of Internet-of-things (IOT) and Software Defined Networks. He is also actively involved in the development of algorithms for high-performance computing, especially on desktop parallel computing systems. He has published over 160 research articles in journals, conference proceedings, and book chapters. He has been a principal investigator and a co-principal investigator on many research grants from state and federal agencies, and industry; totaling over $20 million in funds.
