Santosh Devasia received the B.Tech. (Hons) from the Indian Institute of
Technology, Kharagpur, India, in 1988, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees
in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Santa
Barbara in 1990 and 1993 respectively. He joined the UW Department of Mechanical Engineering in 2000. In addition to directing the Precision
Controls Laboratory, he serves as the Associate Director of the Boeing
Advanced Research Center at the University of Washington, which focuses
on the manufacturing and assembly of aircraft and spacecraft structures.

Honors & awards
- ASME Fellow, 2012
To improve robots, look to birds
ME researchers improved a mathematical model describing how birds flock together – which could be applied to build robots that move in the same way.
Planning for next-generation composites
A meeting for the planned Center for Data-driven High-rate Composites Manufacturing brought together UW researchers and industry representatives to discuss the future of composites manufacturing.
