The 40 under 40 list recognises and celebrates the young talent that exists within the Scottish business community. In publishing the list, Scottish Business News Network is highlighting successful individuals who have already had an impact in their sector whilst still under the age of 40.

Quoting Ravinder's nomination:

'Ravinder goes beyond his normal research by reaching out to public as he believes this is an important discourse of scientific life. His excellent track record is evidenced by recent Ingenious Public Engagement Award he received from Royal Academy of Engineering (£11K; PI). This funding has allowed him to engage with more than 400 pupils from 15 Scottish schools and enrich the STEM activities.

Recently, he formed a student club called Helping Hands, which focusses on developing cost-effective sensitive prosthetic limbs using 3D printing. This work also led to the idea of new start-up, which is now among Top 10 of the Converge Challenge. He has led numerous scientific events including IEEE PRIME 2015, Glasgow; and IEEE Sensors 2017, Glasgow. These conferences bring to Glasgow more that 1000 delegates from all over the world. In addition to enriching the science such events have direct impact on the local businesses.'
