Prior to joining Ohio State in 1987, he held Assistant Professorship in Mechanical Engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology, NJ, and Associate Professorship in Electrical Engineering at the University of Toledo, Ohio, USA. Dr. Yedavalli's research and teaching interests include robustness and sensitivity issues in linear uncertain dynamical systems, estimation and fault diagnostics of propulsion systems, control of smart structural systems, dynamics and control of flexible structures with applications to aircraft, spacecraft, automotive, robotic, aerospace propulsion, and other mechanical systems control. Dr. Yedavalli is a Fellow of IEEE and a Fellow of ASME and an Associate Fellow of AIAA. He received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Indian Institute of Science in 2009. He received the O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award from the American Automatic Control Council in 2001. In 2002, he also received the Lumley Research Award by the Ohio State University’s College of Engineering. He is currently an Associate Editor for the ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control (2006–2009) as well as the International Journal of Systems Science (since 1992). He is also a Member of the Conference Editorial Board (CEB) for IEEE and ASME. He coedited an IEEE Press Book on Recent Advances in Robust Control in 1990 which enjoys high citation in many research papers. He served as an Associate Editor for the AIAA Journal of Guidance, Control and Dynamics (1992–1995). He was the Chairman of the Technical Program Committee for the 1991 AIAA Guidance, Navigation and Control Conference held in New Orleans, La, USA.
