Subhash Rakheja obtained his B.E. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from Concordia University, Montreal. He presently holds a research chair in Vehicular Ergodynamics at Concordia University in Montreal, and he is a Professor of mechanical engineering at the Concordia Center for Advanced Vehicle Engineerin (CONCAVE). His research interests include advanced transportation systems and highway safety, human responses to workplace vibration, and driver-vehicle interactions. Dr. Rakheja’s research work in this area has evolved to what is called vehicular ergodynamics, a field that involves systematic studies on the dynamics of the transport system coupled with the human operator, with a special emphasis on the dynamic interactions. Dr. Rakheja is a Fellow of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering and of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He continues to serve on the Editorial Boards of a number of reputable journals, and the Advisory Committee of the Canadianl Standards Council. He has supervised over 60 graduate dissertations to completion and continues to supervize over 20 graduate students’ research.
