Shikha Gupta, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

What is the purpose of life? If one were to express this in just a word, it would have to be “happiness”. The purpose of education must therefore accord with the purpose of life.


Dr. Shikha Gupta started her career in 1997 with HCL-Technologies and subsequently worked as a software analyst with XRT-CERG, Inc., USA. Teaching in SSCBS since 2002, she has taught subjects of B.Sc. (H) Computer Science, B.Tech (Computer Science), BIT, PGDCA, MCA. Her research interests include social network analysis, evolutionary algorithms, quantum-inspired computing, parallel computing, process mining, and bioinformatics. Have published and presented research papers in international conferences and journals. Author and editor of books, she has been invited as a reviewer, member of editorial board and technical committee of journals and international conferences.
