Program Manager & Project Lead


Dr. Waldron joined Stanford in 2000 after 21 years at Ohio State University. He had chaired the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering for 7 years there. He has published over 300 journal articles and conference proceedings, and has advised 30 doctoral students to completion.

Research Interests

His research interests are in the general area of machine design, with particular emphasis on robotics and haptics. He has worked extensively in biomechanics and medical device design. He is the program lead for the HAVnet sub-project on teldermatology

Project Role

Dr. Waldron is the Project Leader for the development of the Remote Tactile Sensor. In addition in his role as Program Manager, he prepares the technical and financial reports, working with the contract and accounting office. His expertise as Program Manager for the Phase II NGI project is relied on as well in the training of the new Program Managers.
