Summary

Dr Ravi Vaidyanathan is a Reader in Biomechatronics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London where he leads the Biomechatronics Laboratory.  He earned his Ph.D. in biologically inspired systems at Case Western Reserve University (USA) and subsequently worked in industry, holding two directorships in control systems and medical engineering  Prior to his post at Imperial, he completed a Senior Research Fellowship in Brain-Computer Interface at the University of Southampton, was a Research Assistant Professor of Systems Engineering at the US Naval Postgraduate School, and a Senior Lecturer in Biodynamics at the University of Bristol. 

His academic research has translated in a range industrial projects including several new ventures based on principles established in his laboratory.  Further details may be found on the lab webpage (below)
