Venkatraman Lakshmibai is an Indian mathematician who is a professor emerita of mathematics at Northeastern University in Boston. Her research concerns algebraic geometry, the theory of algebraic groups, and representation theory,[1] including in particular the theory of flag varieties and Schubert varieties.

Lakshmibai earned her PhD in 1976 from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research.[1] With Sara Billey she is the co-author of the monograph Singular Loci of Schubert Varieties (Progress in Mathematics 182, Birkhäuser, 2000).[2] She has also co-authored two monographs with Justin Brown: Flag Varieties: An Interplay of Geometry, Combinatorics, and Representation Theory (Texts and Readings in Mathematics 53, Hindustan Book Agency, 2009)[3] and The Grassmannian Variety: Geometric and Representation-Theoretic Aspects (Developments in Mathematics 42, Springer, 2015).[4]

In 2012 she was selected as one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society.[5]
