C. Nataraj, PhD, on the Intersection of Medicine and Robotics

natarajThis Monday, March 10 at 1:30 p.m., award winning lecturer C. Nataraj, PhD, Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Moritz, Sr., Endowed Chair Professor in Engineered Systems at Villanova University, will deliver a Scholarship@Villanova lecture. Dr. Nataraj’s expertise ranges from machinery to medicine to robotics, and his lecture is entitled “Dynamic Systems: The Science of Machinery, Robots, Medical Diagnostics, and Autonomy.” The lecture will be held in room 204 of the Falvey Memorial Library Learning Commons, and in the tradition of past Scholarship@Villanova events, will be free and open to the public.

To help us learn more about this fascinating scholar and his areas of interest, we’ve invited Alfred Fry, Science/Engineering Liaison Librarian, to compile a list of Dig Deeper resources.

The topic of Dr. Nataraj’s lecture is very broad with applications in diverse areas such as engineering, science, economics, biology, and others. Dr. Nataraj will also discuss some interesting results from his research wanderings which will focus on the areas of machinery, robotics and medicine. In addition, the talk will highlight applications without getting into the mathematical intricacies in order to make it comprehensible to a broad audience.

Here is one example of a CENDAC (Center for Non-linear Dynamics and Control) project:
