About the speaker
Dr. Madhusudhan Venkadesan is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Yale University where he runs the Biomechanics and Control Lab. The lab works on the biomechanics and control of motor behavior in humans and other animals. Their work spans the areas of mechanics, dynamics, robotics, biomedical engineering, as well as comparative and evolutionary biomechanics. They apply principles of mechanics, both mathematical and experimental, to understand how the mechanical design and material properties of our bodies help or hinder the ability to control it. Applications of their work include human health and biologically inspired design of robotic or prosthetic devices.
