Madhusudhan Venkadesan is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Yale University. He completed his Bachelor of Technology at IIT Madras in India, and his Masters and Ph.D. at Cornell University in the US. He then joined Harvard University as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Applied Mathematics and Human Evolutionary Biology. He studies the mechanics and control of how animals move. Problems being pursued include locomotion in animals, the geometry of joints, the topology of shape-changing skins, and the dynamics of muscle. The motivation for and application of his work include biomedical sciences, evolutionary biology, robotics, and plain curiosity about everyday observations.
