Mihailo Ristic graduated from University College London in 1981 with First Class Honours Degree in Mechanical Engineering. He recieved M.Sc. in Control Systems in 1982 and Ph.D. in Robotics in 1986, both from Imperial College London. He is currently Senior Lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Imperial College. His research interests include a wide range of topics including control systems, CAD, robotics and distributed power generation. In recent years he has focussed on medical engineering, particulalry Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), through a series of funded projects involving design of novel MRI magnet configurations, MRI system, as well as mechatronic and other devices for intraoperative MRI applications . He is a co-founder of Turbo Power Systems who specialize in high-speed electric machines and power electronics. He is a Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and a member of IEEE.
