ISR welcomes Raj Madhavan to our faculty as an Assistant Research Scientist.

In addition to his appointment with ISR, Madhavan is a guest researcher with the Intelligent Systems Division of the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and will retain his office there.

Madhavan's research interests are in unmanned ground vehicle navigation in unstructured and dynamic environments; performance evaluation, benchmarking, standardization issues, and standards-defining activities in mobile robotics navigation and mapping. Over the last decade, he has contributed to various topics in field robotics, systems and control theory.

He received his Ph.D. in Field Robotics from the University of Sydney, Master of Engineering (Research) in Systems Engineering from the Australian National University, Australia and Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronics) from the College of Engineering, Anna University.
