Professor Subhash Rakheja obtained his B.Eng. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Concordia University, Montreal. He presently holds a Research Chair in Vehicular Ergodynamics at Concordia University in Montreal, and is professor of Mechanical Engineering in the Concordia Center for Advanced Vehicle Engineering (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 in the editorial boards of a number of reputed journals, and the Advisory Committee of the Canadianl Standards Council. He has supervised over 60 graduate dissertations to completion and continues to supervise over 20 graduate students’ research.
