Raman Parimala (born 21 November 1948)[1] is an Indian mathematician known for her contributions to algebra. She is the Arts & Sciences Distinguished Professor of mathematics at Emory University.[2] For many years, she was a professor at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai.


Parimala was born and raised in Tamil Nadu, India.[3] She studied in Saradha Vidyalaya Girls' High School and Stella Maris College at Chennai. She received her M.Sc. from Madras University (1970) and Ph.D. from the University of Mumbai (1976); her advisor was R. Sridharan from TIFR.[4]
