Mathukumalli Vidyasagar (born 29 September 1947) is a leading control theorist and a Fellow of Royal Society. He is currently the Cecil & Ida Green (II) Professor of Systems Biology Science at the University of Texas at Dallas and distinguished Professor in Systems and Control at IIT Hyderabad. Prior to that he was an executive vice-president at Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) where he headed the Advanced Technology Center. Earlier, he was the director of Center for Artificial intelligence and Robotics (CAIR), a DRDO defence lab in Bangalore. He is the son of eminent mathematician M V Subbarao.
Vidyasagar received several awards and honors, including:1983: IEEE Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), at the age of 35, one of the youngest to receive this honor, "for contributions to the stability analysis of linear and nonlinear distributed systems"
1984: the Frederick Emmons Terman Award from the American Society for Engineering Education
2004: IEEE Spectrum named him as one of forty "Tech Gurus"
2008: the IEEE Control Systems Award
2012: Became a Fellow of Royal Society
