Engineers and scientists strive for “smart” in the systems they develop, the discoveries they make, and the way they work and learn. While the value of “smart” is clear, it isn’t always apparent how to get there. In this presentation, Sameer Prabhu shows you how companies and universities are reaching their smart outcomes—using new computing hardware, global teamwork, and modelling and simulation—with MATLAB and Simulink.
As the director of industry marketing, Sameer manages a worldwide team of marketing managers who lead the effort to foster the adoption of MATLAB and Simulink for technical computing and Model-Based Design across vertical industries. He has over 20 years of experience applying MATLAB and Simulink in various application areas and, prior to joining MathWorks, engaged in the research and development of complex control systems through his work at Visteon, Caterpillar, and Tata Motors. His efforts have been documented through United States patents and in global publications. Sameer has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Mumbai and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Duke University, specialising in robotic controls and artificial intelligence. He also holds an M.B.A. from the University of Michigan.
