THOMAS ARNOLD LECTURE: DR RAVI VAIDYANATHAN

We are delighted to announce that Dr Ravi Vaidyanathan, Senior Lecturer in Bio-Mechatronics at Imperial College London, will join us on Tuesday 6 March as part of the Thomas Arnold Lecture series.

Dr Vaidyanathan is an expert of global renown, and his research has been recognized internationally by bodies including the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the Robotics Society of Japan.  He was also awarded the ‘Most Promising Innovation in Robotics’ Award from the UK Institute of Engineering Technology.

The lecture will cover his research into medical and mobile robotics, including insect-inspired mobile robots, cybernetic robot exoskeletons, brain-implant therapies and robot interface systems that have featured in New Scientist publications, on the BBC and the Discovery Channel.  Dr Vaidyanathan also hopes to bring along some examples of his work; given a future which is likely to see the increasing augmentation of humans, it promises to be a fascinating talk.
