Rajesh P. N. Rao is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Washington (UW), Seattle, a faculty member in the UW Neurobiology & Behavior program, and a member of the leadership council of the NSF Engineering Research Center on Sensorimotor Neural Engineering. He received his PhD from the University of Rochester and was an Alfred P. Sloan postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies before joining UW. He is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award, an ONR Young Investigator Award, a Sloan Faculty Fellowship, and a David and Lucile Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering. He is the author of the new textbook Brain-Computer Interfacing (Cambridge University Press, 2013) and the co-editor of two volumes, Probabilistic Models of the Brain (MIT Press, 2002) and Bayesian Brain (MIT Press, 2007). His research spans the areas of computational neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and brain-computer interfacing. In his not-so-copious spare time, he also works on the 4000-year-old Indus script (on which he has given a TED talk) and indulges in his passion for classical Indian miniature paintings.
